Salad can get boring for dinner, fortunately this Chicken Taco Salad is FAR from boring! It’s one of my favorite salads!

The dressing is super simple too: mix equal amounts of French dressing with your favorite salsa. I like to use a HOT salsa to pair with the sweet French dressing, but choose what you like! My family can tolerate a little heat.

Comments & Reviews

  1. It can be so hard to stick to healthy salads … that is, when they aren’t fun and delicious like this one! I love how this recipe is super healthy, but doesn’t sacrifice flavor or fun!

  2. If you don’t mind me asking, where did you find your bowl? I have been looking for one that is deep with straight sides for a seven layer salad and I cannot find one.

    1. This is the Pampered Chef Trifle Bowl. I love it. It actually comes with a base (if you want to use it as a trifle) and a lid!!
