taco salad with rotisserie chicken and ranch salsa dressing

taco week day 1: here we go. 5 days of tacos. we're starting out with a simple salad using the good 'ol taco ingredients.
brian's reaction: "not bad for day 1 of taco week. i had my doubts since there wasn't a taco shell."10 minutes later. "i'm still hungry, but i ate all of the good parts." of course i ask "what are the good parts?" "the crunchy things and the cheese". great.
