Reviews for Fabulous Taco Salad
"i was skeptical, but this turned out to be really tasty, and yes, like a giant taco, but without the fat and calories. i'd definitely make it again and serve to company."
"Add taco seasoning to turkey.Do not cook the tomatoes but add on top when dished out."
"Re:reviews It absolutely amazes me when a recipe is given 5 stars and yet the changes people make totally change the recipe. SJS9"
"I hve altered the receipe and have added to the browning of the ground turkey, 2 tbls of Cummin powder, 1 tbls of Curry Powder, 1 tbls of ground mustard powder and 1 tbls of pepper flakes, I also cook with the meat a medium chopped onion, this gives a more authentic taco taste to the meat. - Joel"
