Taco Bell brand in the stores, sells a low sodium version of their seasoning packet it's 1/3 the sodium. I've been using it and it is good. Aso I use MorningStar Farms "Crumbles" instead of turkey Submitted by:

I love salads so will add various other vege's to the mix and eliminate the cheese and probably the tortilla chips and will add some high fat avocado and I may make my own version of ranch dressing but like the salsa also sooooo?The beans are a nice and healthy addition. Submitted by:

Looks like this was revised without the nutritionals being updated? Sounds good as is. Don't forget a dollop of Greek yogurt! Submitted by:

My Turkey Taco Salad has 163 more calories. However, I use a whole oz of tortilla chips and 3 oz of turkey. I don't use beans either. We have Taco Night once a week and while the kiddos have tacos, we have taco salad. My husband makes our "taco seasoning" from scratch so we control the salt. Submitted by:

To stretch the recipe and add flavor, I dice fresh zucchini in and add to the browned turkey, then add the taco seasoning (you can find lower sodium versions in the supermarket if you don't want to mix your own). I add the zucchini last so it doesn't get mushy, and leave out the beans. Light & yum! Submitted by:

I bake my own corn tortillas instead of using chips. Just cut them in strips and bake, takes away calories & costs less! Submitted by:

You might try adding something like rotel instead of the seasoning, added flavor, less salt, or buy reduced salt seasoning, tastes just the same to me. Submitted by:

This recipe has too high a salt content to be healthy for most participants in this program. The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1500 mg sodium daily. One serving of this salad is 824 mg, more than half a day's sodium! Submitted by:

I will have to try it. I use low sodium taco seasoning so I am okay with that. Also, when I make taco seasoning I do not put salt or very little salt when seasoning the meat because with the taco seasoning it will be very salty. Just a tip. Submitted by:

If salt/fat is the problem I make this style of salad w/ flour tortillas instead of corn chips. I take a small-ish metal (oven-proof) bowl and bend the tortilla into a bowl shape and heat in a medium oven for 10-12 minutes. Once golden, it needs to rest a few minutes to harden. Fill w/salad/meat. Submitted by:

Make sure to buy the leanest white ground turkey you can find. I sprayed a pan with non stick cooking oil and then cooked the turkey with chopped onions and garlic. Then I added my own chili powder and cumin. Used salt free home made tortilla chips from corn tortillas. I then added a ton of veggies! Submitted by:

This is how I make taco salad. Lower the sodium by using your own spices and salsa. We all know how to do it. Great Submitted by:

I make my own taco seasoning and keep it in an empty spice jar, way less sodium. Look for seasoning recipes on the web. Salad sounds good but I agree, too much sodium. Submitted by:

sodium is way too high for a single serving - do not use the packet of taco seasoning. Use some cumin, crushed red pepper flakes, cliantro and chili powder - great flavor - no added salt. Submitted by:

Sounds delicious. However, I would add Salt-Free Tortilla chips instead of the regular ones to lower the overall sodium content of this yummy recipe for us folks that are counting our sodium intake. Ole!

If you read the ingredient details, it does list a packet of taco seasoning. And more than likely, that's a big part of the sodium. The taco seasoning got left out in the ingredients list. Submitted by:

Are you sure the sodium is correct? That sounds high. I know you can reduce the sodium by rinsing the beans, as previously suggested. But I'm not sure this recipe is really over 800 mg. It sounds wonderful! Submitted by:

Over 800 mg of sodium is insane for one serving. That is more than half of the 1500 mg. recommended which should be 1000 mg or less. Submitted by:
