Recipe: Taco Salad
4 Romaine Lettuce Hearts
1 can Kidney or Black Beans
1 1/2 cup grated cheese
Slightly crunched Tortilla Chips
1 cup Mayo
1 cup Salsa
Quantities are approximate. Add more or less to taste. Chop or tear lettuce into salad bowl. Add cheese and beans. Mix mayo and salsa in lidded container. Fill a quart-sized Ziplock bag with the crunched chips. Mix dressing into salad ingredients and add chips right before serving.
Add fresh pressed garlic to the dressing for extra zing or use ranch dressing instead of mayo.
Doritos instead of plain tortilla chips are always well received.
You can also add ingredients like grated carrots, chopped tomatoes, peppers, onions, etc, though some of these are not as universally appreciated.
Add taco meat to make this salad a main dish.
