Amazing Salad Recipes Meal Plan with Dinner at the Zoo

I’m so excited to share this week’s amazing salad recipes meal plan with Dinner at Zoo recipes.

Sara, the creator of Dinner at the Zoo originally started food blogging back in the olden days of 2006 when blogging was a new thing and most forms of social media didn’t exist yet! She took a long break after she had 3 kids in 2 years and launched a new site about 1.5 years ago called Dinner at the Zoo, which is focused around creating easy meal solutions that are family friendly. In addition to the blog and chasing after her kids, she runs a food photography and social media management company. I’m totally in love with her recipes and especially her food photography and I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as I do!

Baked Chicken Taco Salad from Dinner at the Zoo

Prep Time: 25 minutes Cook Time: 35 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients: chicken breasts, olive oil, lime juice, sugar, salt, cumin, garlic, dried oregano, smoked paprika, onion powder, chili powder, flour tortillas, cooking spray, lettuce, cheese, olives, sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado, beans (can make cantina beans), cilantro, honey, green salsa.

Taco salads are a big hit in my family, and I especially love how this recipe includes a tortilla bowl (that is easier to make than it appears). You can add whatever extras you want to make this fit your tastes but I like it exactly how it is! You can make the cantina beans linked or just use black or refried beans.
