Whoever said salad wasn't man food hasn't tried this salad. The secret? Fritos corn chips, fried ground beef, and Italian dressing. Of course, since it's a salad, there's plenty of good-for-you stuff in there, too. It's a perfect meal to kick back and relax with on say, a Saturday afternoon.
Note: As an alternative, you can serve the salad with sour cream and salsa instead of Italian dressing. Mix together the salad ingredients in a bowl, serve over chips, and drizzle a blended mixture of 1 cup sour cream and 1/3 cup salsa.
