But now I've found a new solution to this problem! Have you ever eaten at Fuzzy's Taco Shop? There Chicken Taco Salad with Garlic Buttermilk Ranch dressing is my absolute favorite! I think I could eat that salad every day. Since there's no flour and no sugar, it makes it extra- appealing to me! But the salad is neat because it's served in a huge stainless steel bowl.
And that was the inspiration. It's so easy to mix the dressing and salad together because the big bowl is extra-big! I also liked the restaurant's bowls being stainless steel. Kind of made it fun! So, I planned to get me some stainless steel bowls for Taco Salad night. I didn't need as big of bowls as Fuzzy's uses, but wanted something bigger than I had. Guess what? I went into Walgreen's today for something and happened to see some of those bowls! There were three sizes - in the dorm-living section, so probably a temporary item! I bought the medium bowls (8 in. diameter) and bought the six they had - just enough for our family. They were $2.00 each, but I'm wanting to get more of the for when we have company. I also want to pay $1.00 or less for each. The quest is on!
(Ingredients: Leaf and Iceburg lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, crushed tortilla chips, Ranch Style Beans (heated), browned ground beef seasoned with salt, onion powder, and garlic powder, tomatoes, and Kraft Catalina Classic salad dressing.)
Another thing I decided would be fun is to let everyone make their own salad. There's room to mix them because of their size and now the non-tomato lovers can keep them out all on their own! The kids thought it was really fun and it tasted really good! Maybe it tastes better done separately, maybe it was the bowl, maybe it was just in their heads :). Who cares, right? Everyone was happy. Everyone was full! Everyone had fun!Pin It Now!
