Simple Summer Supper - Taco Salad


This is really one of my favorite meals. I LOVE a crunchy salad and this has it all. This is a dinner you can throw together in minutes.

Just chop up some lettuce or use a bag of iceburg from the store.
Toss with:
1 lb ground beef or turkey seasoned with taco seasoning
1 c. shredded cheese
Two diced tomatoes
Two chopped green onions
I can of black olives
1 small can of red kidney
Salsa
Sour Cream
I bag of tortilla chips
Dressing of your choice. We like ranch with salsa and sour cream all thrown on top.
Crunch up some chips in a bowl serve your salad and dressing of choice on top and enjoy. I make this all year long but when it is hot this is perfect. You can cook up some ground meat ahead and freeze in batches and just take out to thaw the day you are going to make the salad. Ole!

I had this for dinner tonight - it is my go to quick meal. I leave out the beans, use green olives stuffed with jalapenos, no chips and add avocado.

So filling & yummy!

Looks great! As soon as the weather got hot here, the last few days-we broke out the salad fixings! Too hot to cook! Thanks, always nice to have some new ideas!

We had this on Thursday. I also ended up wrapping extra Taco salad in fajitas wraps. Very yummy. Plan on having this as a meal during the summer months.
