Super quick and easy! This is a nice way to use up the crushed tortilla chips at the bottom of the bag. I normally use ranch dressings fot taco salads, and I must say that I enjoyed the French dressing as a change of pace. I served cherry tomatoes around the salad. Thanx for a new taco salad.

Quite enjoyable, and it was so easy! I suggest listing the optional toppings in the ingredients section (as optional). My research said that 2 small onions, chopped was the equivalent of 7/8 cup chopped onion. I used a generic taco seasoning packet and Kraft Free Catalina Dressing (which is a redder version of "French" dressing). This was easy for me to incorporate in my WW program.
