So remember how I rambled on and on about perfect summer salads recently?
Well it got me thinking… I’ve blogged about so many salads (most listed here), but I’ve never blogged about our all-time favourite salad – Taco Salad!
To be honest, it’s never crossed my mind. Why? Because I never considered it a real recipe. It was only the past couple times we made it that I began to think “jeeze, this is delicious and easy and I’m sure readers would love it” and started to make not of what I was putting in it every time.
Hands down, this is the salad we make most often. You can add chicken or shrimp or no meat at all, and it’s just as good. I love it with ground beef and taco seasoning, but it’s totally up to you.
A lot of the ingredients are optional. I used all of them in the pics, but you can pick and choose. I always recommend black beans, though 🙂
Also, I actually rarely use a packet of taco seasoning these days – it’s too easy to make your own. There are so many versions online, and feel free to adjust (it’s not an exact science), but I often use this one.
Hopefully this becomes a staple in your household, as it is in ours. Crowd-pleasing meals that can be thrown together in no time are sooo clutch for a busy family!
