This is really a yummy salad. I used red peppers and added seeded, chopped cucumbers. I didn't have any ranch so I mixed 3 TBLS italian salad dressing, 2 TBLS each mayo & sour cream and thinned a bit with milk. Didn't have taco seasoning so used 3 TSPS each cumin and chili powder. It would have been easier if I didn't have to substitute and will buy both ranch & taco seasoning to have on hand for this salad.
We definitely enjoyed this salad and will make it again. I added baby plum tomatoes, a red bell pepper and cooked chicken to make a meal out of it. Next time, I would mix the taco seasoning and ranch dressing earlier to let the flavours blend and mellow a bit as I personally found the taco spice a little too strong. This would also be great with coriander/ cilantro as another reviewer recommended!
This was a yummy salad. I loved everything about it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.
I loved this! I've already made it 3 times.....totally yummy. I did use some of those little tortilla strips instead of crushing tortilla chips. I also used red peppers instead of green. I used the smaller amount of ranch, and used low fat. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!
Super recipe...was all enjoyed it immensely. Quick and easy to make; goes well with a variety of meals. I'm making it for the second time tonight, this time with burgers and beans and rice. Thank you so much for posting!
This salad is one of the best I made. I used red bell pepper, omitted the onion because of DH. I used a mix of lettuce in a bag. I didn't use taco seasoning. But the ranch dressing I used probably had taco seasoning in it cause it's a ranch south-west dressing. Thank you so much Chef Jean for posting this wonderful recipe :) Made for Healthy tag game
Thought this was wonderful! I made a couple changes. Used a red pepper rather than green and omitted the onion as to my personal preference. Added some kidney beans to give it some protein. Also cut two corn tortillas into slices and baked those rather than use the crushed tortilla chips. It was delicious. I added the cheese, dressing and tortilla strips separately and had leftovers for lunch today. Didn't have wilted lettuce or soggy veggies. Will be making this often!
The salad has lots of flavor & crunch. I used red onion to add color & added some cilantro. Thank you for sharing the recipe. :-)
