This would make a great lunch. I have to have crunch in my salads to feel satisfied.

It would be even healthier for me because I don’t like salad dressing. This is a must make, I think!

Taco salads are one of our all time favorite family meals. We like to spread it all and let the kids pile on their favorite toppings.
Looks great. Very colorful. Looks very tasty. I look forward to trying this. Thank you for sharing.
Love a good taco salad! The only thing is I would probably be the person to make it unhealthy by doing Doritos for my chips 😉 looks divine!
