Taco Salad To Go


Packing school lunches can get tiring after a while, especially if your children are not a fan on sandwiches.

One fun lunch that my daughters love bringing to school is taco salad. I try to make taco salad for supper at least once every 2 weeks and then I make sure to have enough for the girls to bring some to school the next day.

Nobody likes soggy salad, so this is how I make Taco Salad to go…

Taco Salad To Go

  • Lettuce and Tomatoes
  • Ground beef or elk with taco seasoning
  • Taco chips
  • Grated Cheese
  • Homemade thousand island dressing (or you could use salsa and sour cream)


When my girls get to school then dump it all together, mix in the dressing and enjoy. I think it’s a fun lunch to have once in a while and I love how easy it is to put together.

For this lunch I used this container. You can check out some other lunch ideas while you’re here.

What are some fun things your children like to have for lunch?

This is an awesome idea, one of the reasons I wasn't taking this salad to work is that the cheese got yucky, I have seen coupons for this system, so will give it a try

This is such a good idea! I love tacos but couldn't figure out how I could pack it for lunch without it being soggy. Now I got my answer, thanks for sharing!
