Frito Salad


Frito Taco Salad

For me this salad brings me back to my childhood home, our family sitting around the table. Like I can see it right now :). This was one of my favorite dinners growing up. It was so fun, and what I didn’t see as a child was how easy and simple this dinner was for my mom after a long day at work. The toppings are quick, all you really need to do is cook the meat and assemble the salad together. This salad is a crowd pleaser because everyone can add the toppings they like. If you don’t want the Fritos, simply don’t add them. If the rest of the family does want Fritos go-ahead and add as much as you want. Its a win-win and so delicious.

Although the dressing has jalapenos, it very mild since we seeded the jalapenos. If your family loves the heat go ahead and add those seeds :). The dressing pairs perfectly with the taco themed salad. It’s creamy, flavorful, and so simple as you throw everything into the food processor and you are done!
