    Assembly - there is no right or wrong way to assemble your taco salad. However, this is how I assemble mine. In the center of your crip taco shell: Add: the refried beans - spread it around as if you are making a sandwhich; next is the ground turkey, then the shredded lettuce; cover the lettuce with your salsa; next sprinkle the cheese and diced tomato; place the sour cream right on top. Place the sliced olives on top of the sour cream. Last with the green onions...there you have it.. A very yummy taco salad that you can actually eat the bowl and not feel guilty about it :)
