Taco Salad Sandwiches



                          It is my mission, to try and create food for YOU...that is delicious,
              and easy. I was blown away with how good this was. Try to imagine eating an
            amazing taco salad or image yourself eating great tacos. The crusty loaf of bread
             is just what a taco has always needed and just didn't know. Once you slather the
                       roll with a sour cream and chive mixture and all of the other goodies -
                                                     you will be beyond happy!

                                                            Taco Salad Sandwiches

               1 pound ground turkey meat
               1 garlic clove, minced
               cherry tomatoes
               1 cup lettuce, shredded
               1 lemon, juiced
               half of a red onion, plus 2 tablespoons for garnish
               monterey jack cheese
               1/3 of a cup of sour cream
               4 or 5 chives
               green onions
               2 tablespoons olive oil
               1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
               salt and pepper
               1 packet taco seasoning
               mini bread rolls

           1) Heat skillet with olive oil. Add red onion, meat and garlic. Cook all the way
           through and then add garlic powder, salt, pepper, taco seasoning and juice of
           a lemon. Mix well.
           2) Heat rolls in oven until toasty.
           3) Mix together sour cream and chives.
           4) Take the rolls and put sour cream mixture on one side. Add your meat, cheese,
           lettuce, tomatoes, green and red onions. Enjoy.

  16. We recently tried Greek-inspired sandwiches in flatbread that the family loved. I think mostly the idea of making sandwiches in a way similar to making tacos appealed to them... So I'm sure doing it with actual taco ingredients would be a hit, too. Great idea!
