I discovered this taco salad while I was on a health kick. My husband and I love it now. When I served it at a family birthday party, everyone eagerly asked for the recipe. —Angela Matson, Amboy, WA

My friend and I hardly spoke until we finished a bowl of this salad; it's that good!!! Substituted parsley and lovage for the cilantro (not a fan), and topped it with tomatoes and shredded four cheese blend. Tortilla chips with a hint of lime went perfectly with this.

I will certainly make this recipe again. We loved it from the first bite. I did make the meat mixture ahead a few hours and chill it. I prefer it cold with the lettuce.

What a nice light but filling salad. I added a few slices of jalapeno and Mexican hot sauce for a little heat. Very tasty.
