Skinny Taco Salad

Perhaps the easiest, and quickest way to a healthy version of a taco or burrito is a skinny version of the taco bowl. It’s incredibly simple and requires minimum effort – a.k.a. the best kinds of meals!

Instead of the fried taco, or nacho corn chips, I substitute with whole-wheat baked lavash sticks that you can get from your local bakery. The thing about this salad or “bowl” is the freshness and the various textures that you will experience as you eat. It’s almost too good to count as healthy.

The dressing is what’s coolest about this bowl. I use SPRIG Mango Pepper Sauce, which really does the entire job of sprucing up any salad.
