Brocco Taco Salad

This cool and crunchy entree salad is a taste treat with the ground beef or turkey or without them. So it really offers versatility if you want something new and exciting for your veggie friends. Or, for more traditional tastes, it beats the heck out of a taco salad with lettuce because broccoli is so much more nutritious. Great to stick in the fridge for weekend lunches or suppers -- or weekday dinners if you're in a hurry.

Recipe Instructions

In a large bowl, combine Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw, kidney beans, Cheddar cheese, tomato, olives, and onion, tossing to mix well. Add salad dressing and salsa, tossing again to coat. (Salad can be made up to this point 24 hours in advance, cover, and refrigerate.)

(If using ground beef/turkey option) In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef, stirring to break up the chunks of meat, until nicely browned on the outside and no trace of pink remains, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool. Add to salad mixture before adding salad dressing and toss well to mix. This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings as an entree.
