Kelli had a family get-together not too long ago and had to make a dish to share. Kelli and I both love salads but don’t make them that often at home because we end up being the only people who are eating them. The problem is that so many salads get mushy or don’t last more than one day. So Kelli was excited to make a new salad for the get-together so she could have some and not waste it.
The salad she made was Taco Pasta Salad…I have to admit, I was a bit jealous. The event was on Kelli’s husband’s side of the family so I didn’t get to taste it.
You can find the full recipe HERE. The recipe comes from the site Like Mother, Like Daughter. This picture is from their site…doesn’t it look yummy? I am a pasta salad girl.
Kelli did the prep in advance. Everything got chopped…
The meat was prepped.
Everything was mixed together except the chips and the French dressing.
She did that right before they were ready to eat. It worked out perfectly. Everything was crisp and yummy.
Kelli says she will definitely be making it again. Dare I hope that the next time she makes it she makes it for our side of the family?? HA.
I might just need to make it myself. Hmm. I could half the batch and then only mix up a small portion when I wanted to eat it. Hey, that just might work. That way it would keep in the refrigerator AND it would get all mushy. I’m off. I’m going to put the spiral noodles on my grocery list. I can’t wait to give it a try.
