Simple Healthy Taco Salad

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to feeding people I am over the moon thrilled when people like what I have created. Even if they are happy of a can of soup, it brings me joy to see people enjoy a meal.

Thankfully I don’t serve canned soup that often and can rely on places like my local farm stand to make mealtime a little bit more interesting! Tonight I was inspired by the beautiful limes I had picked up and decided that in honor of Taco Tuesday I would create a Mexican inspired feast!

Here is the perfect recipe to serve your family or use for meal prep!
