More quick and easy recipes? You got it. Here is one of my favorites when I have zero time and ZERO willpower to create a meal. This one might come in handy for everyone during this busy holiday season? It's a snap to make, literally minutes to make. And if you layer the ingredients as I did, it is very appealing to the eyes. It's not so appealing when it's mixed--tasty though. So if you have fussy kids and want to get them to eat more veggies, trust me this will work. Once they see how colorful and appealing it is I guarantee they will dig into it, Plus it has Fritos in it.
Remember eating this as a kid? When did it first come out? 1973?
Cook notes: you could easily swap out the Fritos for a more healthlier chip like multi grain corn chips, add in corn, add in peppers, etc...the possibilities are endless. Leftovers don't keep well as the chips get soggy
1 – 2 bags of chopped mixed greens (or iceberg)
1/2 bag Fritos, Regular size (or jumbo size crushed a bit)
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 can of black olives, drained, rinsed & chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 pound of hamburg cooked and seasoned with taco seasonings
1-2 large tomatoes, diced
1-2 Avocados, sliced
1 btl. Catalina Salad Dressing
Cook hamburg until done, add in a taco seasoning packet along with the required amount of water. Let cool a bit.
Then layer your individual salad plates as such:
Avocado, layered on the side so it can be seen.
Just when you are ready to serve add on the Catalina dressing.
Add in whatever you want really. Leftovers do not keep well. But I’m sure this will be gone in one night.
