Taco Salad

A salad with a crunchy texture and authentic flavors that is filling enough for a main course.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1/4 cup tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned ground beef
  • 1/4 cup cheddar
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt


In a large bowl combine oil, juice and salt. Add in lettuce and toss to coat. Sprinkle crumbled tortilla strips on lettuce then top with ground beef, cheddar, tomatoes and onions. A sprinkle of crumbled cotija cheese rounds out this delicious salad.

Favorite Mexican salad, Member wlong7317

We have used this recipe or a very similar one for the past 25 years and always enjoy it. We like it topped with Frito's and Kraft Catalina dressing, which by the way has many recipes for this dressing on the net. We will have to try it as written.
