This salad is so perfect and hearty, you won't miss the taco shells. Just combine the crumbled ground turkey, pico de gallo, Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), cheese and a lime wedge!
Technique tip: There is nothing worse than a soggy taco. By individually packing each ingredient in its own airtight container, you ensure a super fresh meal prep!
Swap options: Ground chicken, pork, or beef can be substituted for the turkey.

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1½ pounds ground turkey
- One 1.25-ounce package taco seasoning
- 8 cups shredded romaine lettuce
- 1/2 cup pico de gallo, homemade or store-bought
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook until browned, 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the meat as it cooks; stir in the taco seasoning. Drain excess fat.
Place the romaine lettuce in sandwich bags. Place the pico de gallo, yogurt, and cheese into separate 2-ounce cups with lids. Put it all — the turkey, romaine, pico de gallo, yogurt, cheese, and lime wedges — into meal prep containers (will keep covered in the refrigerator 3-4 days).
