My dad and I bought this salad on a whim the other day and, all in all, it was one of the most delicious whims we've ever had. We're hooked! The creamy dressing and crunchy tortilla strips make this salad not only an accurate representation of what a taco is but also a healthy alternative. We'll definitely be getting more of these; though we'll be buying one for each of us the next time we visit the store.

I just tried this salad today and I think it is by far the best testing salad I have ever had!! Simply amazing. The spicy flavour, the crunch of the tortilla strips - the creaminess. Absolutely amazing and I can't wait to buy it again. I ate the whole bag myself. Perfect combination of spice and crunch. THANK YOU!

This was the first Dole Salad Kit I tried. I totally loved it so much I went back and got two other kinds to try! I love the dressing on this salad, I too wish I could buy it in a bottle because I would use it on a lot of other things! These are amazing and since I have a newborn at home, they are so easy to fix and eat while I am taking care of him. I love salads and these are totally amazing!! I would recommend these to anyone!

Amazing. I added taco seasoned beef to this salad and i ate the whole bag. I bought 2 bags are both are gone. I love the dressing and so wish I could buy it all ready bottled. Please Dole bottle this dressing and sell it. I would put this dressing on a lot of different things. Next time I am going to try it with seasoned chicken or fish

O M G! Ditto what every one else has said about this salad kit. I tried it for the first time this past week & I couldn't stop thinking about it. That Taco Salad Dressing needs to be bottled in 1-quart jars & sold in the salad dressing aisle! And the tortilla strips, and sour cream & that great cheddar cheese also included in this's all just perfect. And I did not feel guilty about using the entire packet of sour cream or the Taco dressing with this salad kit. Calories be damned! Today for my dinner, I am going to brown some chop meat with a little bit of Lawry's Chicken Taco seasoning (it's not as overbearing as the beef taco seasoning mixes) & use an entire Southwest salad kit, soft totilla/burrito wraps or taco boats & make some sort of giant taco salad bowl of yummy goodness. Thanks Dole for coming out with these kits. I just love them. When my Shop-Rite has these on sale, I will buy anywhere from 4 to 12 kits during the week that they are on sale. I usually eat the entire bag, generally 1 a day as my dinner. I have tried alot of the varieties that you have available. I can't wait to try the Summer kit, one of the few I want to try but haven't seen in the store yet.

I love the southwest salad kits. I'm from Tex and it helps me feel at home. But Winn Dixie is the only store I have seen having it and they don't carry it. Said is was a spring salad only.

I'm addicted to the Southwest Salad. I purchased the salad last month and I have been hooked every since. The Southwest Salad is delicious!! I really wish I could purchase the Taco Salad Dressing separately and put it on everything I eat!!! Thank you Dole for allowing me to eat healthy while also enjoying what I eat.
