I've been making this dressing for about 20 years now; it's especially good on tostada salads or just a simple green dinner salad. The recipe is from the El Torito Restaurant in Los Angeles and was published in the LA Times reader request column.

Very good for Taco salad.. I added a half teaspoon of the Southwest seasoning from Tupperware for added zip

I had this on a tossed salad tonight - romaine, lettuce, & scallions. I think I would have enjoyed it more on a taco salad. The jalapeno was the predominant flavor; it added a lot of spice but not a lot of depth of flavor, so after tasting it, I added a bit of garlic. It would have been great on a salad with black beans, sour cream, grated cheddar, avocado, salsa, etc.
