Very very good summer meal. Made it minus the green pepper. I had both taco sauce and Catalina dressing on hand. So I tried the salad with both and preferred the Catalina dressing. The recipe is definitely a keeper.
Tasty and makes just enough for the two of us to eat. I leave out the onions for us. But otherwise, made it as written. Will put in my recipe box for future use!
Tasty, delicious summer meal! I made this for our family last night. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I did make a few changes/additions. I used Jennie O's lean taco spiced ground turkey and added black beans, corn, and sliced avocado. I mixed Marzetti's lite honey french dressing (2/3) with Ortega's hot taco sauce (1/3) as the dressing. This added just the right amount of kick to the salad. Finally, I topped it off with crunchy tortilla strips salad toppers, typically found in the produce section. We all agreed this is one of those recipes I will make again and again this summer.
Yes I was gonna say no French dressing but taco sauce.
I make this for a crowd, but coarsely chop the iceberg lettuce and use that as the base. I then serve the taco-pasta salad on top of the iceberg., just like Carole22 does. Keeps the iceberg nice and crisp. Don't forget taco sauce on the very top and a dollop of sour cream!
This is a great salad! Everybody gave this a thumbs up. Second time I made this I was out of catalina and substituted western dressing. Still great. I also put shredded lettuce in a bowel and let everyone add what they wanted. Makes any leftovers better.
This is just like the taco salad I grew up on except use both Catalina dressing and Old El Paso taco sauce together for the dressing. Love it!
We had this delicious recipe tonight and it was an instant winner. So quick, easy, and yummy. We cleaned our plates. I made no changes to the recipe. Volunteer Field Editor
