{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Patriotic Taco Salad


Patriotic Taco Salad

One year, my daughter decided to celebrate her July birthday with a patriotic theme. This colorful and refreshing salad was the main dish on the menu. The kids gobbled it up! —Glenda Jarboe, Oroville, California

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 minutes.  

Cook: 20 minutes.

YIELD: 8 servings


·                                 1 pound ground beef

·                                 1 medium onion, chopped

·                                 1-1/2 cups water

·                                 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste

·                                 1 envelope taco seasoning

·                                 6 cups tortilla or corn chips

·                                 4 to 5 cups shredded lettuce

·                                 9 to 10 pitted large olives, sliced lengthwise

·                                 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

·                                 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved


·                                 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the water, tomato paste and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

·                                 2. Place chips in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Spread beef mixture evenly over the top. Cover with lettuce. For each star, arrange five olive slices together in the upper left corner. To form stripes, add cheese and tomatoes in alternating rows. Serve immediately. 

Editor's Note: If you wish to prepare this salad in advance, omit the layer of chips and serve them with the salad.

As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
