From greens to taco salad? Yes…
French dressing is sort of a salad dressing secret weapon. It’s of course a delicious greens topper for those that love sweet and tangy dressings. But French dressing (Catalina dressing too) also make a yummy sauce base for taco salads. Yes, it’s true – see a real delicious taco salad recipe right here featuring French dressing.
This spicy version of the salad dressing standard uses both mild paprika and fiery cayenne pepper. Want just a mild simmer? Remove the cayenne pepper completely. Or, of course, feel free to add more if you prefer things even spicier.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Taste and add additional cayenne pepper to overall heat preference (stirring to fully combine prior to taste testing).
For a milder French dressing (with just a little simmering heat), remove the cayenne pepper from the recipe completely.
