Aunt T’s Dorito Salad

Aunt T’s Dorito Salad

This is the easiest, but greatest, Mexican salad passed along to me from my Amazing Aunt T…my family thanks her for that each-and-everytime I throw it together!


  1. 1 Head of Lettuce, washed, dried, and torn into salad pieces
  2. Medium Can of Ranch Style Beans, rinsed and drained
  3. Cherry or Grape Tomatoes, washed and cut in half
  4. Green Onions, chopped (maybe 1/4 to 1/3 cup…it’s a judgement call)
  5. Catalina Dressing
  6. 1 cup Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (normal ol’ cheddar works, too)
  7. 1 bag Nacho Cheese Doritos


  • Prepare veggies as mentioned above.  Dry everything pretty good so the leftovers last longer (no one like soggy salad!)
  • In a large bowl, combine lettuce, beans, tomato, and onions.
  • Drizzle a little Catalina Dressing over the veggies and mix well.  Add more Catalina until the salad is coated, but not drenched.
  • Stir in Cheese.
  • Just before serving, stir in a couple handfuls of Doritos.  I like to put the rest of the chips in a basket on the table…they are perfect for helping scoop salad on a fork ; )
