Crazy Taco Salad

I received this recipe from my sis in law at my bridal shower 28 years ago. It's still a favorite, at pot lucks and at home for dinner on a hot summer day. It's crazy because the dressing for the Taco salad is - Italian, but nothing else will do. We've also tried other beans, has to Ranch style. You'll get rave reviews.
