Dorito Taco Salad

Kristina Talkington


I had this at a potluck dinner one time, and I fell in love with it. A nice refreshing salad that fills you up. It's also a great way to use leftover taco meat. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Serve this taco salad as a meal or a side dish at your summer cookouts. It has a nice mixture of flavors and textures. The Dorothy Lynch dressing is sweet and has a little spice and it goes well with the savoriness of the salad. There is just enough to coat everything. The nacho chips not only add flavor but give the salad a nice crunch. Taco meat adds heartiness to the dish. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
