We enjoy taco salads and very much enjoyed this one. We did add slices of avocado, without which it seemed incomplete, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Red beans and red onions with spiced meat are the accents in this salad. The spice selection for the meat is worth the effort by itself! Catalina dressing, probably the fourth choice of everyone here, was a good match in this case; some of us also tried it with blue cheese and that was good too. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008.
