Make-Your-Own-Taco-Salad Bar

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Debber

Fill those little compartments on the Tupperware Serving Center with some or all of these ingredients. Diners make-their-own salad--and no one has to pick out the stuff they don't like! Great to take along on a picnic or tailgate party or potluck, too. See Perfectly Seasoned Taco Meat for directions in how to prepare the BEST-EVER (and easy) Taco Meat. Measurements given here are APPROXIMATE...make enough to comfortably fill the compartments on the Serving Center.

A good dinner for our bunch. I actually had to disperse everything even more, and not add the green onions to the sour cream! LOL That way DH and the kids didn't have to pick them out. I actually forgot the cheese by accident, but it was fine without. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dump lettuce in a large serving bowl (or the lid of Tupperware Serving Center).
  2. Dump chips in another serving bowl (or the lid of the Serving Center if you didn't put the lettuce in it).
  3. Mix sour cream and green onion slices; place in center compartment of serving center.
  4. Place each of remaining ingredients (except chips) into one compartment of the serving center--being artistic in your arrangement so the colors look "nice."
  5. BRIGHT IDEA #1: Heat up a can of refried beans, slather some on a burrito skin, and use to wrap around a hard-taco shell, then fill shell with fav ingredients--it won't crack!
  6. BRIGHT IDEA #2: Mix everything up in a bowl, drizzle with Western Salad Dressing, and call it Western Taco Salad.
