This is a salad that I have been asked to bring to every get-together we go to

Taco Salad


1 lb ground beef
1 package Taco Seasoning mix
4 to 8 cups shredded lettuce(depending on how much you want to serve)
2 cups shredded cheese
1 bag Doritos. Nacho cheese flavor
1- 8 oz bottle of Kraft Catalina dressing(this is the key ingredient)
1 can sliced olives


Prepare ground beef and taco seasoning mix according to package directions.
Let cool completely

Place shredded lettuce in large bowl. Add cheese. Add meat mixture and olives. Top with crushed Doritos. Toss to combine. Pour salad dressing and toss well. If it sits for about 30 minutes the dressing has a chance to mellow. Make sure it gets eaten all up because the left overs are to soggy to eat

If you are going to take it someplace, stop after adding the crushed doritos(don't toss yet). Then toss with salad dressing when you get to your desination

Enjoy :)
