Taco salad

Olives and any kind of chip are always very popular in my home. This salad has both plus is so simple to make that my kids not only request it but usually make it themselves.

Taco Salad

1 can green or black pitted olives
3 tomatoes, diced
¼ of a red onion, chopped
3 heads romaine lettuce, washed and chopped for salad
2 avocados, diced

Tortilla chips, broken in pieces


1 ½ cup mayonnaise
7 oz. good quality salsa
1/3 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon chili powder

Mix dressing ingredients together and shake well. Pour over salad right before serving. Add chips and toss again. Serve immediately.

* Serving note: I like to serve this salad in small clay pots (yes, the ones you put plants in). Wash them thoroughly and put a little foil in the hole in the bottom so nothing drops out while serving. The terra cotta color gives a rustic and ethnic appearance. In the spring and summer they are very inexpensive at stores like Home Depot, Target, Walmart or any nursery.
