3/4 (8 ounce) jar
1 (8 ounce) bottle
Ranch-style salad dressing

shredded Monterey Jack cheese
chopped black olives
crushed tortilla chips
This is very good, quick and easy! I had hamburger on hand, so instead of chicken I browned 1lb of hamburger, added about 1/4c. salsa and 1/3 pkg taco seasoning and cooked on med-low for a couple of minutes. I tossed the salad, cheese, chips and olives with the ranch/salsa mixture and topped it with the taco meat. Yum! Next time I will add tomatoes & avacado!
I misread the recipe & thought that it had a home made dressing, by that, I mean not just salad ingredients mixed together with ranch dressing. Needless to say, as it was my own fault for misreading it, I was disappointed. I normally use Hidden Valley's Fiesta Ranch (which rocks over this) for a taco salad because it is more than just ranch dressing with chili powder added, and serve in tortilla shell "bowls". Sorry Sara. ;)
Very good. I left the chili powder out by accident, but still good. Much less fattening than taco salad with sour cream since I used lite dressing. My husband didn't seem to notice the switch either.
I made the low fat buttermilk ranch dressing recipe from this site for the salad. I omitted the black olives and used garden fresh veggies (roma tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers). Instead of crushed tortilla chips, I topped with store bought crushed buttermilk ranch pretzels bits.
This was very simple to prepare and my husband and I both thought it was very delicious! (However, I recommend that you use less Ranch dressing, as it was a bit too much for us.)
This recipe was good although I did find that there was a bit too much ranch dressing in it. I will definitely make again but won't use as much dressing.
I also cooked the chicken in taco mix and it added some extra flavour.
I highly recommend this recipe. I used it at a potluck and it was highly praised.
I made this the other night and my family just loved it. This recipe is so easy and could easily be adjusted to make more.I will make this salad as often as my family asks for it because I loved it most of all. It was yummy! Thank you
