My husband and I really enjoyed this version of a taco salad. I did add about a quarter cup veg. oil to the dressing, since it seemed too runny without. The dressing is deluctable tasting! I only had spinach but it didn't seem to be lacking. Thanks Nana Lee for posting. I want to make this one often! Roxygirl
