Sooo good!0 Helpful
made extra dressing, skipped the yogurt, added tomatoes, forgot the avo/cilantro but it was still really good. great light spring meal0 Helpful
I made the dressing with sour cream, and added about double (triple?) the amount called for so that it would be thick and creamy. Everything was delicious!! Perfect work lunch.0 Helpful
Made twice as much dressing as called for. Agree with others that things could be added to make it more flavorful, but overall I still enjoyed it. Added tomatoes.0 Helpful
Really liked this and ate two servings in one go. Whoops! Bf said we should serve it over a fried tortilla and call it a taco salad.0 Helpful
