For the French dressing (or substitute 1 cup store-bought):

  • 1/2 cup sugar or less to taste
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt

For the salad:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning 1 packet store-bought
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 head lettuce shredded
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 bell pepper sliced or chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 bag Nacho Cheese Doritos crushed


To make the French dressing:

  • In a food processor or blender, add sugar, ketchup, olive oil, white vinegar, celery seed, chili powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt to taste (I like 1 teaspoon). Process until smooth. Store covered in the refrigerator until serving time, up to 4 days in advance.

To make the salad:

  • In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain well. Stir in taco seasoning and water and simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, add lettuce, tomatoes, bell pepper, cheese and beef mixture. Toss to combine. Right before serving, add Doritos and salad dressing and toss to combine.
