I love salads and find myself craving them often lately!  I was excited to create some yummy recipes with MorningStar Farms products from Kellogg’s.  This particular meatless recipe ideal for the days when I want to brown bag my lunch.  I can easily put the lettuce in a bag, as well as the rest of the ingredients.  Then when it’s time to eat, I simply combine the ingredients in the bag and wah lah!  I have Meatless Taco Salad for lunch!

For this recipe, I used the MorningStar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles in the Meatless Taco Salad Recipe.  These recipe-ready (love this!) veggie crumbles are perfect for your favorite chili, spaghetti sauce, tacos, soup and more.  MorningStar Farms Grillers Burger Style Recipe Crumbles contain 75% less fat than regular ground beef crumbles, cooked (pan-browned).  Regular ground beef crumbles, cooked (pan-browned), contain 10g fat per serving (55g).  The Crumbles also contains 2.5g total fat per serving (55g).

Making the Meatless Taco Salad was quick and easy!  Check out the recipe below.
