Taco Salad

Summer is here and the perfect side dish to any meal is Salad of course!! This Taco Salad is one that was passed down to me from my mother in law because it’s my husbands all time favourite. It really is a very manly salad with all of that ground beef and beans lol In fact my husband used to eat this salad as a complete meal when he was in collage. It’s a nice big salad for a crowd or it will save in the fridge for a couple of days as well.
