Colleen's Taco Salad

This is a "meal" I enjoyed while working at VanPelt's. One of the employee's brought this to a pot luck luncheon.

1lb of ground beef and 1/2 onion,
cooked, drained
***mix in 1 package of taco seasoning
and set the frying pan in the refrigerator
for about 10 minutes while you make the salad.

1 bag of mixed salad
1/2 cup thinly slice celery
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 cup sliced/diced cucumbers
Optional: 1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup shredded cheese
1 cup crushed Doritos/nacho or tortilla chips

***mix ingredients well and add cooled beef/onion mixture to the salad, mix again and stir well. I top this with chives. Serve with ranch dressing on the side.

We serve burritos with this and it is a quick inexpensive meal that is good for you! Thanks Colleen.

"Bon Appetit!"

  1. Judy took this to school for lunch and 3 kids wrote down what was in it, to ask their mom's to make it!
