surprisingly superb weeknight taco salad


i re-invented the wheel here. i looked at the taco salad in my favorite mexican restaurant and thought i could make a simpler, healthier, more flavorful version at home. i was also determined to come up with something that is fairly quick to make, especially if you enlist a little help from the rest of the peanut gallery!
