Mom's Old Fashioned Taco Salad is one of my favorite childhood recipes. As an adult, I love how simple it is to make!

This Old Fashioned Taco Salad is a bit nostalgic for me because my mom served it when we were kids. We had a family of six so there were rarely leftovers. On the rare occasion that there were leftovers, you can bet your bottom dollar that there were a few fights as to who got them!

Aside from this recipe being yummy, it’s also super simple to make (a must in my kitchen) and very versatile. Feel free to use more or less of each ingredient. Make it your own! Or, you could even add your favorite ingredients,

Shh…don’t tell anyone, but the secret ingredient in Mom’s Old Fashioned Taco Salad recipe is the salad dressing. Growing up we’d use Russian dressing, but you can also use Catalina or French.

    I grew up eating this salad too. :) It’s funny how some things can open the flood gates for memories. My grandpa use to always make it and I thought it was the yummiest thing when I was a kid! I also thought he was the best chef in the world!
