Taco Salad

Yes!! Another salad!! This is the salad I took to the Fiesta party at the beach yesterday. I googled "cold taco salad for a picnic" and this one came up.....I altered it a smidge.....it was soooo good!!! I have to warn you though...I don't really have exact measurements.....so as Rachel Ray says,"Eyeball it" :) Here's what you need:

One head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
a few sprigs of cilantro, chopped
a cup of mexican shredded cheese
1 lb of taco meat
chopped black olives
about 3/4 cup black beans, drained
about 3/4 cup yellow corn
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
a few handfuls of Fritos

about 1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup taco sauce

I layered the lettuce, then the taco meat, a layer of dressing....then I topped it with the rest of the ingredients. Toss it all together right before serving.

This one is a keeper!!!!!! I will certainly be showing up with it several more times this summer!!
