Catalina Taco Salad


My version is loosely based on a recipe found here, but mine's vegetarian (at least tonight), uses a lot less dressing, and had no taco seasoning... does that make it a "not taco" taco salad? I love salads because you can pretty much use whatever you've got and it always taste good, plus it's so nice on a hot humid day to not have to fire up the stove!!!

I didn't really measure, but here's a list of ingredients and an approximation of how much I used:

Catalina Taco Salad

4 cups spinach
1 can kidney beans drained and rinsed
1/2 cup frozen corn
2 small tomatoes chopped
1 avocado seeded and cubed
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 green onions sliced thinly
1 cup fritos
1/2 cup light Catalina salad dressing

Toss everything together in a large bowl and serve immediately. If you think there will be leftovers, add the fritos to each individual serving instead of mixing them with the salad. Otherwise they will get soggy.

This is one of our favorite salads - especially during the summertime!
