Charlotte’s Taco Salad

My good friend Charlotte has been making this Taco Salad for over 25 years! All our friends love it so much that it is a frequent request at our get-togethers….the original recipe came from who knows where…she got it from her boss and has been making it ever since….Thanks Charlotte for sharing it with me – my boys now love it too!

Charlotte’s Taco Salad
1 package taco seasoning
1 lb ground turkey
1 1/2 Romaine Lettuce or Mixed Greens
Pint of Cherry Tomatoes
9.75 oz Bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos
8 oz Shredded Taco Cheese
1/2 bottle Catalina Dressing (or more to taste)

Cook ground turkey; drain. Add taco seasoning and mix well. Refrigerate overnight. To assemble salad: Chop lettuce and place in a large bowl along with cherry tomatoes and cooked ground beef. Place Doritos in a large plastic bag and crush into pieces; add to salad bowl along with the shredded taco cheese. Pour in Catalina Dressing (to desired taste) and toss everything to coat. Makes 6-8 servings.



PS. Charlotte is an avid knitter – she made this charming pot holder for me…Thanks Char!
