Recipe by Little Bee

Here is a salad we love to make in the summer! Very satisfying yet not too heavy. Serve as a main dish salad with cold glasses of Ice Tea.

This is great! I left out the taco season. Added salt and pepper to taste and drained and rinsed the kidney beans before adding to the hamburger. A little hot sauce with the dressing will give the desired amount of heat.
