Taco Salad Dressing

In our house Tuesday is taco for dinner day . It does not necessarily have to be in a taco shell it could be burritos, salads, fajitas well last night I had some ground turkey which I made tacos salad but to shake it up I found this dressing that sounded interesting . I did not have everything it called for so I substituted. It had a bright citrusy flavor and I had my doubts but when combined with the taco seasoning it was surprisingly good.

Classic, crunchy, flavor-packed taco salad requires the most delicious Taco Salad Dressing. This one combines tangy citrus juice with honey and paprika for the perfect sweet and sour balance.
