A note about serious food allergies

In the hierarchy of salads, the taco salad reigns supreme. But this is no ordinary taco salad - no droopy lettuce and overly salty taco meat here, folks. This is a fresh, healthy, holy-moly-there's-so-much-flavor-here taco salad. Piled high with perfectly spiced, lean ground turkey, creamy avocado, sour cream, corn, and all the fixins, this is a salad for the hungriest among us.
