Salsa Taco Salad

A tasty twist to a traditional taco salad

Blackberry Crumb Pie

This is a combination of two recipes: a popular one I found online (for only the crumb part) and the blackberry filling is my grandmother's personal recipe. You could substitute the sugar with artificial sweeteners (both white and brown); however, it will have an aftertaste. The recipe as is does not have an overly sweet taste and is wonderful a la mode. Sorry it isn't he most diet friendly, but I needed to add it for the nutrition information.
