Taco salad - one head lettuce, 1 lb cooled, browned ground beef/turkey or grilled chicken strips, 1 crate cherry tomatoes, 1 bunch scallions, 1 bag shred cheese, 1 bag tortilla chips or Doritos, 1 bottle Western dressing, 1 packet taco season (or make your own). Prep all the ingredients in advance: brown the meat and prepare with the taco seasoning, quarter the tomatoes, chop the scallions, shred the lettuce, crush the tortilla chips. Then arrange it in layers, 1/3 of each ingredient: lettuce, tomato, scallion, meat, cheese, chips, dressing. Mix together, then do a second layer. Continue until it's thoroughly mixed. Optional - add black olive slices and a dab of sour cream on top in random places. Also optional - add jalepenos throughout (we never do because there's always going to be kids eating it).
