Finally! It’s arrived! Warm summer weather always makes me want a crispy salad. This easy Dorito Taco Salad has been a staple in my family since I can remember. It is very easy and very affordable. You may even have most of these things on hand. Any salad topped with Doritos is a winner in my book.
Dorito Taco Salad
1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
2 small tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 bag of Baked Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 small can sliced black olives, optional
1/2 C light italian dressing
On stovetop, brown ground beef and remove grease. Set aside. In large salad bowl, add lettuce, tomato, green pepper, cheese and olives. Toss. Add ground beef and dressing and toss again. Using about a quarter of a bag of Doritos, crunch into small pieces. Shake over salad and lightly toss.
I always love eating the leftovers of this salad. The Doritos don’t stay very crunchy, but it is still delicious. You can choose to have each individual dress their own salad, but I prefer to do it ahead of time. Serve this up with some lemonade and you have summertime perfection.
