    Taco salads are really easy to assemble and so much fun to make!  If you want, you can make your own bowls out of tortilla wraps to put the salad in too, but, if you’re watching the carbs, then just put the ingredients straight on your plate.

    Below are some suggestions of items you can include – why not pick one/two from each category and customise your own dish?  This is a great idea for a party, whereby everyone can help themselves from a “Taco bar”!

    To make the tortilla bowls

    If you want to make the tortilla bowl, preheat the oven to 180°C and drape each tortilla across the top of a small, upturned ovenproof bowl or push it inside the bowl with a ball of foil to hold it open. Pop the bowl in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the tortillas brown very slightly and firm up to hold their bowl shape. Serve hot or cold.

    To assemble the dish

    Pick one (or more!) item from each category and lay them out in your bowl or straight on your plate in a beautiful rainbow of food. Customise with your favourite dressing and tuck in!
