Taco Turkey Burger Salad

I love salads and make them almost everyday, but let’s be honest, salads can get boring. So I’m going to share a few recipes with you guys on how I spice up my salads to make them more fun. This one is my taco turkey burger salad with homemade honey mustard dressing.

Burger Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican Blend cheese

Salad Ingredients

  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1 cup sliced cucumber
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 12 cups mixed greens

Honey Mustard Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Djion mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • In a large bowl, combine the the ground turkey, taco seasoning, and egg. Shape into four patties
  • Grill the patties over medium heat for about 10 minutes on each side
  • Add shredded cheese to the top of each burger and continue grilling until the cheese begins to melt
  • On four large plates, add mixed greens, baby carrots, and sliced cucumber and celery
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar, and salt.
  • Then, slowly add in the olive oil until the dressing has a creamy texture
  • Slice turkey burgers into cubes and add to the salads along with the honey mustard dressing.

    This looks absolutely delicious – I’ll definitely have to try it…even though I’m not the biggest fan of turkey. 😛 Do you suppose that it would taste alright if I were to substitute seafood? *shrugs*
    Anyhow, I cannot wait to read and try more of your delicious recipes, and I cannot wait to get to know you better. For example, why did you decide to study anthropology?

      Hi Jessica thank you so much!! You could definitely substitute with seafood, although I would use a different dressing maybe a lemon vinaigrette? As far as anthropology goes the goal is to get my masters in food anthropology so I can write for a food magazine! Hope that answers all your questions 🙂
