A recipe mixing ground beef with salad sounded really interesting to me, and I'm glad I tried it! I let the ground beef cool to room temperature and mixed it with the other ingredients. We especially liked the topping of crushed tortilla chips. This was a good way to get my son to eat salad and I served it as a one-dish meal. Using prepackaged salad greens made this quick and easy to prepare. We really enjoyed it!!
