Pork Taco Salad

I love taco salad – it’s definitely a favorite here at our house.  I usually make it with ground beef, but after the last time that I made Green Chili Pork Taco’s I had a lot of meat left over and didn’t feel like tacos again…so I decided to use it in a Taco Salad!  Pork Taco Salad turned out REALLY yummy and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! Pork Taco Salad is awesome and your whole family will gobble it up!

Use your slow cooker Green Chili Pork 2 ways, make Pork Taco Salad with the left over meat to change up dinner! It's a great quick tasty meal!

I also loved making the meat 1 time and have 2 separate meals out of it!  4 pounds of pork is A LOT OF TACO’s!  So instead I used about a pound of meat in the salad.  I think it will become a regular on our rotation.

Pork Taco Salad is one of those meals where you don’t have to be extremely careful on measuring.  If you like more onions – add more.  If you like no onions – that’s ok too.  Adjust it to you and your family!!! You know what your family likes – I customize mine on who’s eating with us 🙂

It’s also easy to make Pork Taco Salad into a healthier meal (this one is medium at best).  Use a mix of healthy greens (i.e. spinach and arugula) instead of the romaine and iceburg mix.  Cut down on the cheese and dressing and you have a pretty healthy dinner.
