My favorite salad is taco, with either chicken, beef or Greek yogurt for protein. I make the meat in advance (usually browned and then stewed with salsa and will keep in the fridge for a week) and then chop up lettuce and tomatoes as I go. I also like to do a raw salsa with fresh veggies and beans, which is a really nice addition to a taco salad. Basically you take a can of beans (black or red), add in chopped tomato, onion, banana pepper (fresh or canned), green pepper, red pepper and a packet of taco seasoning, stir and chill for several hours. To keep the calories lower I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and cheese, and I usually don't eat it with tortilla chips, and if I do I limit them to 10 or less.
