Susan's Pick: Taco Salad

Taco Salad is one of my daughter's favorite salads.  She also loves Apple Bread Pudding.  If you're feeling like something Mexican this will  send you to the grocery store today to buy the ingredients.

To reduce some of the fat and calories we use very lean beef and low fat or fat free dressing.  I'll share the recipe for the Taco Salad below and post the Bread pudding recipe at another time. Enjoy!!

P. S.  The Apple Bread Pudding is definitely NOT low fat!

Hope your day is wonderful!

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,
