Taco Salad

15 mins (prep 15)
11 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is my favorite taco salad recipe, and the reason it's so good is the combination of chunky salsa, mayonnaise, and sour cream for the dressing. I vary a lot of things (might add black beans or chilies or beef instead of turkey), but I stick with this dressing if possible because it's heavenly. In fact, if I don't have a dressing for a salad I'll whip up this combination. You can always leave the dressing separate from the salad in case people want to dress their own or you are taking the salad somewhere and don't want the salad to get soggy.
