Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until combined. OR add all ingredients to a medium sized jar and shake until combined. Set aside.
Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey and cook 2-3 minutes, breaking up the meat as it cooks. Pro Tip: Using a potato masher when the meat is almost cooked through works really well to break up the meat!
Drain off excess fat (in necessary) and add in taco seasoning. If your taco seasoning packet calls for water, add that in as well. Cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
In a large serving bowl, add lettuce.
To the bowl, add all of your other "toppings" (turkey, tomatoes, corn, olives. cheese and onion).
Drizzle on Catalina dressing, toss and serve immediately.
