    Quick and easy recipe. I omitted the cheese, used ground chicken instead, and used the light catalina dressing. I will make this again.

    Pretty tasty. although I will tweak the recipe next time. the dressing was a little too sweet. But it was awesome for a first time fix.

    Made of a group of youth. It was well liked. Personally, I'd add some black beans and jalapeno.

    Used 50/50 lettuce mix because I had it on hand. Everyone liked it- including 2 teenage boys. Probably lasts longer in fridge with iceberg.

    Absolutely delicious! Since one of my kid doesn't like tomato, I replaced it with a red bell pepper and it was totally fine.

    This was delicious. I made it exactly as written, except used two tomatoes and bagged taco salad lettuce blend instead of iceberg. The Catalina dressing gave it a nice sweet and salty flavor combined with the beef and Doritos. Divided into 6 servings, it was very filling.

    This was delicious. I use shredded iceberg lettuce, hot chunky salsa, pico de gallo, canned corn, canned black beans, crumbled spicy nacho Doritos, and ground turkey with taco seasoning. I did not need any Catalina dressing because with the salsa that was dressing enough. I loved it! The above is my low-calorie version. If I were to splurge I would use ground beef with taco seasoning and add guacamole and nacho cheese. Yum!

    My family has been making taco salad since I was a kid. It was always a fav. The way we do it is similar to this one. Just salt and cumin seasoning to tast on the meat. we also add a small diced onion to the lettuce. Also add one can of drained light red kidney beans to the meat after it is cooked and drained, just to warm the beans. Use light French dressing instead of Catalina. Our way or your way, it is so good.
