I love taco salads and this one was no different. I loved the variety of vegetables in this salad and also the use of Doritos. It was a very satisfying lunch! Thanks for sharing.
I used a combo of red and green bell peppers and cooked them into the meat -- my preference. Easy and delicious, fed to a houseful of grateful teenagers. Made for Summer Salad and Berry Recipe Challenge, May 2008.
I made this tonight for dinner and it was great! I used elk burger instead of ground beef. Also, didn't have any bell pepper. The cucumber and Doritos added some great flavor! I had not used either in a taco salad before. Thanks for the great alternative! *Made for Spring berries and salads event 2008
