How To Make Doritos Cool Ranch Taco Salad

It’s a really easy salad to make.  Really.  You start by placing a layer of crushed Cool Ranch Doritos on a plate.  (I use some really nifty bowls that are perfect for salads.)

I like to add one more layer of crunch by adding a few more crushed Doritos to the top after I have drizzled Ranch dressing on top.
