Dish: Taco Salad

Today’s dish from Taste of Home top 100 recipes is this delicious Taco Salad. I wanted to make taco salad for a while now and when I saw it on the top 100 I knew I had to give it a try. Original recipe also has cooked meat but I omitted it and just made the rest of the recipe.

Key to this recipe is the dressing that is made with Thousand Island dressing. You can either use store bought Thousand Island dressing or make it yourself at home. I didn’t want to buy a jar since I know I will let it sit in the fridge for god knows how long.

So I made it using this recipe from Kitchen Treaty.  All it needs is some mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, onion, garlic and vinegar. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. This dressing is then mixed with some salsa and taco seasoning to make the dressing for taco salad.

This salad is almost like a complete meal with — tortilla chips, beans, veggies and cheese. I loved this salad a LOT. It’s very filling and the dressing was oh-so yummy. I would totally make this salad again just to eat that dressing 🙂 This is going to be a big hit if you make it for your Super bowl party.
