While on Whole30, I came to really love taco salads.  Most taco recipes can be easily adjusted to make a salad, just sub the tortillas for some crisp romaine.  This Whole30 Paleo Gluten Free chorizo taco salad recipe is easy enough to make on a weeknight and very delicious.  Feel free to double the recipe, it makes great leftovers.

Be sure to use Whole30 compliant sausage.  I found this option at my local farm.

Tacos are great because you can get creative with the toppings.  The possibilities are endless.  For this recipe, I like to top my salad with sliced radishes, onion, cilantro, avocado, salsa verde from Trader Joe’s, and a squeeze of lime juice.
