What a great, different tasting taco salad! We loved it. The suprise was the sweet taste, who would have thought of this. This is the first time in forever I haven't seen my DH reach for the hot suace an drown anything mexican or really anything. I did use Romaine lettuce, also I switch to a sweet vadalia onion left out gr pepper, used 1/2 carb penne pasta, 2% cheese and fat free catalina to lighten up, and it was still great! Thanks for sharing!
