Taco Salad

  • 4 handfuls Crisp lettuce chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sliced black olives

  • 1 avocado sliced
  • lime wedges


Taco Salad Dressing

  • Combine all three ingredients. You can add taco seasoning if it needs it.
  • You might also want to squeeze some lime into the dressing.

Taco Salad

  • Arrange lettuce, meat, cheese, avocado, olives, tomato on plate and use dressing as much or as little as you like.


I  use Trader Joe's fire roasted salsa, which has just the right kick. If you are using a jarred salsa that is not spicy, you might want to add some taco seasoning.
