  1. Brown bison in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Once bison is no longer pink, top with seasonings and stir until meat is evenly coated in spices.
  3. Remove seasoned meat from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Rinse, dry, and prepare all vegetables.
  5. Plate 2 cups lettuce per serving, and top each plate with red bell pepper, red onion, cherry tomatoes, ground bison, avocado, cilantro, freshly squeezed lemon, and a drizzle of buffalo sauce.


You can also substitute the bison for ground turkey, beef, or pork if you desire. Another great option would be to top this salad with guacamole instead of the chopped avocado.

    In Make It Paleo they use 1 tsp of each: smoked paprika, garlic powder, cumin, chipotle and black pepper. 🙂
