This taco salad is best eaten right away. Please do not substitute other flavors of Doritos,as Nacho and Spicy Nacho are the only two flavors that really work best with this recipe. Men seem to love this recipe,and even if you hate Thousand Island dressing,give it a try-I normally hate it too.

I used to make this years ago and had completely forgotten about it until I read your recipe. I used to add cucumbers, red onion and black olives as well. It is very good and a nice change of pace for a meal on a hot summer day.
