Tina's Taco Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by MrMarmalade

This recipe comes from one of my grandmother's former co-workers. It is a summer staple; it would be a crime should we not eat it at least once during the year!

We really enjoyed this salad. When tasting the dressing I felt that it was way too sweet, but when we put it all together it really fit in with the ingredients. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the hamburger with the taco seasoning, saving some of the seasoning for the dressing.
  2. Mix together the kidney beans, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and olives in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk together Thousand Island dressing, salsa, seasoning, and sugar in a small plastic storage container.
  4. Combine the salad and meat.
  5. Pour the crushed Doritos over the salad.
  6. When serving, pour the dressing over the salad AFTER it has been put on the plate. Otherwise, the Doritos will get soggy after a while.
