Turkey Taco Salad



I found this recipe on my Everyday Food Ipod app; you can find the original recipe here. I love this app because there is a new recipe sent to me everyday. I have saved several and this one has been sitting saved for awhile. This week was a great time to use it. YUM! We both loved it. 

1 lb ground turkey; lean
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion; diced
1 small zucchini; diced
1 can black beans; rinsed and drained (I added these)
1 red bell pepper; ribs and seed removed and diced
1 1/2 cups green salsa
Salt and pepper
Romaine lettuce
1 1/2 cups Fritos (recipe calls for tortilla chips, but Fritos sounded better) 
1 cup small cherry tomatoes; halved
1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent (about 5-7 minutes.) Add turkey; cook, stirring often until starting to brown (another 5-7 minutes.)

Add zucchini, bell pepper, black beans, and 1 cup of salsa; cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and let cool. 

In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with Fritos, tomatoes, remaining 1/2 cup salsa and 2 tablespoons oil. Transfer to serving dishes and top with turkey mixture and cheese.
