Taco Salad Lettuce Wraps | Avocado Ranch Dressing

This weekend has been so fun sharing my favorite lettuce wrap recipes! 
I still have a couple more to share, so stay tuned throughout the evening!
 By the way, this week I will be sharing a couple of DIY tutorials from our renovation and from the patio challenge and {hopefully} a kitchen reveal!

These taco salad lettuce wraps are one of those perfectly easy go-to meals. It is so great because it is filling, and fresh and delicious. It is even better if you can use veggies fresh from the garden! {Is there anything better in this world than a tomato fresh from the garden!?} And, did I mention AVOCADO RANCH!? Oh holy yum… it is SO good! This is perfect to add to the summer meal rotation!

Taco Salad Lettuce Wraps
1 head of baby romaine or butter lettuce1 lb. ground beef, browned
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 T Taco seasoning1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can sliced olives
1/2 cup purple onions, diced


1 bunch cilantro, lightly chopped
Crunchy tortilla strips
1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

Avocado Ranch Dressing 
See recipe below

Pull the lettuce leaves off of the stock and rinse well. place on a towel and set aside.

Brown the ground beef in a pan on the stove. Once cooked, add taco seasoning and water. Let simmer for 3 minutes.

I like to serve this buffet style so everyone can make their lettuce wraps just the way they like them. I usually set everything out in bowls and everyone can just have at them. Just place all of the rest of the ingredients in bowls or on a platter and let everyone dig in!

To assemble a wrap, place one leaf of lettuce on a plate or in your hand. Layer ground beef, tomatoes, black beans, olives, and purple onions. Sprinkle with cilantro, cheese, and tortilla strips. Drizzle with avocado ranch dressing and enjoy! 

Avocado Ranch Dressing
1 large ripe avocado
1/2 cup sour cream (I use light)
1/4 cup milk (or more to thin to taste)
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
3 cloves minced garlic (approx 1 1/2 tsp.)
2 tablespoons minced dried parsley
1/4 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
Mash avocado in a bowl until smooth. Add sour cream and mix well. Whisk in milk. Then add lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, parsley, and salt stirring in between each ingredient.
This taco salad lettuce wrap is simply delicious! It is the perfect summer meal out on the patio!
