    Another light, easy dinner for a hot summer evening. Nice with garlic bread or toasted pita chips and hummus.

    Recipe #304113

    Looks really pretty served in a margarita glass! The dressing is so refreshing and light.

    Recipe #318350

    Super easy yet impressive looking salad. Good for company or to have as a meal when it's too hot to cook. Recipe came from the back of a box of croutons.

    Recipe #85301

    When it’s 105º F. outside, this is a perfect dish for entertaining. Easy to prepare, and easy to serve as a “make-it-your-way” one-dish meal. And Fritos work better in this dish than “real” tortilla chips.

    Recipe #221859

    This is a great alternative to the traditional taco salad. It truly is a whole meal salad; just add hot, crusty rolls and maybe some white wine and a light desssert for a great luncheon or supper. It goes together quickly, just be sure to have the ingredients chilled. This recipe was given to me by a Hispanic teacher at our school so I tend to think of it as "authentic".

    Recipe #140855

    This came from an E-cookbook that features recipes from famous restaraunts. I hope you enjoy this!

    This is an absolutely divine and easy chicken salad. Great summer recipe - and so easy to prepare. Leftover dressing easily stores for a couple of weeks.

    This is a delicious summer salad that was in our local paper food section this week. They give credit to Williams-Sonoma Food Made Fast: Salad. Regardless, it is delicious! I used homemade pesto and only added half the baby spinach as it was plenty. I would probably cut the spinach into ribbons next time as it was a little awkward eating the whole leaves.

    A wonderful main dish salad that comes together very quickly!

    Recipe #38984

    In response to a thread asking for a close clone to the marinade of the McDonald's Asian salad, I ran across this recipe in one of my cooking magazines. I have not tired this yet so I don't know how close it is. The ingredients seem similar and the photo to accompany it looked similar. When I make this and photograph it, I will post that as well unless one of our great chefs get to it before me. :) Prep time includes marinading.

    Recipe #174499

    Really good as a light meal served with crusty rolls. Easy and quick to make.

    Recipe #48915

    This recipe was so delicious. A Great meal when served with a hot crusty roll. A friend served it at a luncheon & shared the recipe. I believe it originally came from a Martha Stewart booklet, however it has been tweaked just a little. Please adjust the quantity of ingredients to suit your own tastes and the size of servings you desire. Enjoy.

    Recipe #186815

    I don't eat pork so I subbed canned chicken breasts for the ham. You can add more or less of what is listed below. Enjoy! (Chill time is not included in total time.)

    Recipe #302707

    This is one of my favorite cold taco salads. It's best prepared and served the same day.

    One very easy and tasty salad for all the corn lovers. Perfect as a cold lunch during summer. Update: The last time I made it, I also added a green onion and it was very good.

    Recipe #268671

    Main dish salad, excellent with fresh French bread

    Recipe #43397

    This is a deliciously different type of taco xalad which includes chicken, avocado, and a tantalizing taco-flavored dressing. It's a very classy salad and a Pillsbury Bake-Off winner. Blue tortilla chips accompanying this dish adds the final touch of authentic Mexican flair!

    Recipe #108817

    This is a fantastic main dish perfect for those hot summer days when a light, cool meal sounds good. I make the day before to let the flavors blend.

    Recipe #95642

    A nice Asian Pasta salad. It is always fun to bring a "different" kind of salad to a gathering. From Paula Deen.
