Church Supper Taco Salad

As the child of a Baptist Deacon I can vouch that I was at church EVERY TIME the door was open.  The first Wednesday night of each month was my favorite.  That was church supper night.  Everyone brought a dish and enjoyed the fellowship of eating together.  Like a big potluck for Jesus.  There were three things that HAD to be on my plate.  And apparently everyone else's because if you didn't get them the first time (especially the dessert) there was no going back later.  I learned early on to load up on Taco Salad, Apple Fritters and Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.  It's funny how something as simple as a recipe brings on the memories.  One bite of this taco salad and I was a little girl, right back in line beside my parents, holding my paper plate.  Straining to see if there would be any apple fritters or chocolate peanut butter bars left by the time we got through the line.  I've always loved this recipe.  It's great during the hot summer, and something just a little different.
Colorful and tasty!
