- Cook ground turkey in a saute pan and mix in taco seasoning packet. Add 1/4 cup water to make it a slurry. Set aside.
- In a blender, combine all the ingredients for the cilantro lime dressing. Blend until smooth.
- Equally portion out ingredients in 5 Tupperware containers for 5 meals. Store the dressing in a separate container to prevent salad from getting soggy.
