Simple Taco Salad

Easy easy easy easy easy. That's what we all want right?? Well, look no further! This was so easy for me to make quickly as a meal prep (just cooking the beef or ground turkey) and pack to take with me to lunch! And with these portions I was able to make 5 lunches and include enough ground beef in each salad to actually keep me full - cause this is the goal is it not?? Nothing revolutionary here, just a simple idea for your to try
