      This is a great-tasting taco salad. I like that it has the ingredients I always have on hand so I can make it without having to do much planning ahead. I used lean ground chuck and did half with a Catalina dressing and half with thousand island dressing for personal preference. Made for ZWT3 2007.

      We decided to treat ourselves to a bit of junk food today, and we're so glad we did! This was a great, satisfying salad. Made exactly as stated then topped with some fresh cilantro. Yum! Thanks for a great simple recipe!
