Sweet & Tangy 20-Minute Skinny Sloppy Joe Recipe Makes an Amazing Salad

What a great skinny sloppy joe recipe! I added two servings of peppers and two servings of diced tomatoes (1 cup) right to the sloppy joe mix (since this is a two-serving recipe), and then I just made a little sloppy joe salad with one serving of spring mix lettuce. It was amazing!

This ground beef or ground turkey sloppy joe recipe is great for meal prep. Pack in meal prep containers and put some fresh lettuce leaves in a separate bag or container.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
