“I received this recipe from my sis in law at my bridal shower 28 years ago. It's still a favorite, at pot lucks and at home for dinner on a hot summer day. It's crazy because the dressing for the Taco salad is - Italian, but nothing else will do. We've also tried other beans, has to Ranch style. You'll get rave reviews.”

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans ranch style beans

  • 1 (6 ounce) can black olives, medium size, drained

  1. Put everything in a big bowl and serve. For pot luck layer everything starting with the lettuce and then the beans, and take the chips and dressing, toss before serving.
  2. When it's just my husband and I we half the recipe and put all the wet ingredients including the cheese and tomatoes in a Tupperware and laddle it over the lettuce for lunch or dinner as we will, and add a few corn chips.
