That Taco Salad Dressing

This post is all about TACO SALAD DRESSING...Wait, don't go so fast...

Growing up, I took for granted my mom's fantastic taco salad and the dressing that made it so tasty.  It wasn't until a year ago did I realize what a little gold mine I had been sitting on. All my friends were asking for the recipe and I was just hoarding it for myself.

So, the days of using whatever dressing you have laying around is over. The perfect dressing to go with the ever confusing taco salad:

Donna Jean's Taco Salad Recipe

Grab your blender and pop all of these ingredients in there:

1/4 cup sugar
1 cup oil (Canola)
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon mustard
2 tablespoon mayonnaise

Now make me feel better. How many of you follow a recipe to the tee and how many of you just sprinkle a little bit of this and a little bit of that? I just learned that it drives Derek crazy that I do the latter. 

Ps. Our Taco Salad musts? Lettuce. Hamburger. Corn.  Peppers. Tomatoes. And any other veggie that is about to expire in the fridge. 

Enjoy friends. Enjoy.
