  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
The Salad:
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens (lettuce, spinach, etc.)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (assorted colors)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For the Dressing:

  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it apart with a spatula.
  3. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the browned beef. Stir well to coat the beef with the seasoning. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the beef is fully cooked and flavorful. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, and diced bell peppers.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.

  8. Top each serving with the seasoned ground beef, diced avocado, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  9. Optionally, add a dollop of sour cream on top for extra creaminess.
