This is from light and tasty magazine, 2004. Taco salad is always a great, easy meal when you want something abit different. This one is lower in fat than most. Hope that you enjoy!

This was a great lunch! I used leftover taco meat from dinner, added a sliced green onion and skipped the chips and beans. Thanks so much for posting!
