Taco Salad

There are quite a few things we make for meals that I don't use a recipe for, and honestly, don't think anyone would, could or should use a recipe for. It's just one of those things that you throw together based on the amount your family will eat and what their tastes consist of. Taco Salad is one of those.

So why would I mention it here and put a 'recipe' for it? Because it's also one of those things that you forget about making! LOL. Sooo many times I'll flip through a recipe book or find a list of menu idea's for the month that I've wrote in the past and tucked away in the front of one of my recipe folders and I'll say to myself "Oh yeah! I forgot all about that! I have to make that!"

So todays post is for Taco Salad. Obviously you will leave out what your family hates (black olives not a favorite? Don't put them in!).
