Tastes of Lizzy T: Frito Salad

Confession time.  I remember eating this salad when I was in elementary school at the cafeteria.  I remembered most of the ingredients, and I definitely remember it being orange.  And I remember loving it.  Haven't had it in a very VERY long time.  I figured it had been quite long enough.  This actually makes a pretty fantastic meatless meal, or you can add some browned ground beef, maybe seasoned with taco seasoning?  I definitely missed this thing.
