Your Mama’s 80’s Style Taco Salad at Eureka! in San Luis Obispo

Spicy ground beef, mixed greens, grape tomatoes, red onions, fried corn, kidney beans, avocado, sour cream, thousand island dressing, cheddar, cilantro, and garnished with “old school” Fritos. YEOW!

Taco Salad

But don’t try this at home. If you’re going to reverse engineer this salad at home, try this instead. Add a little vinegar from a jar of sliced jalapenos to the dressing for a little extra zing. Soak the red onions in red wine to take the bitterness out. Mix the ground beef with taco seasonings for a little pizazz. And why not add some salty tangy black olives.

Don’t worry about taking my ideas. Please take them! I just want people to be more experimental in the kitchen… I mean with food…I mean, you know, expand their culinary sense of adventure.

Then, get yourself an old school cocktail with serious whisky!


Or just get yourself to Eureka!
