Perfect Taco Salad

Posted on Feb 5, 2014 in Recipes | 2 comments


I’m a vegetarian, but my husband loves meat.  I am always on the lookout for dinner entrees where I can make one dish and we both can enjoy the same meal.  This taco salad is one of my favorite meals because I can make one big salad for us to share, and just add a piece of seasoned chicken to his portion.

I also usually prefer to make my own salad dressing, but I have found a new bottled dressing that goes perfectly with the flavors in this salad.  One less step means this is a perfect weeknight meal for busy families!
