Taco Salad Recipe

We have a dear friend of our family whom we call Grandma Patty.  Although she isn't a blood relative, she is so precious to us and our children that they look to her as a grandma.  She gives excellent hugs, is an intent listener, and a wonderful cook.



She brought us a meal the day we moved into our home and it was Taco Salad.  So perfect and fed a ton of people.  Well, at least 10.  This is her recipe....

Taco Salad

1 lg head of lettuce, chopped
1lb hamburger
8 oz grated cheese
1 sm. can kidney beans
1 lg. onion, chopped
4 med. tomatoes
1 pkg. Doritos
1 pkg. taco seasoning

Dressing

1 (8oz) bottle 1000 Island dressing
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. taco seasoning
1 T. taco sauce

Brown and drain hamburger.  Add seasoning saving 1 T. for dressing.  Cover and put in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Combine all other ingredients, add dressing and top with cheese.  This is a meal in itself.

I serve the onions on the side and I have used salsa before instead of the taco sauce.  We usually serve this with some kind of fruit.  It makes a wonderful summer meal.
Thank you Grandma Patty for passing on this yummy recipe to us.  We love you very much!!!  :)
