This salad is often served as a fried flour tortilla shell stuffed with shredded iceberg lettuce and topped with diced tomato, shredded Cheddar cheese, and/or salsa . It is topped with taco meat and may also have a base of refried beans on the shell before the lettuce is added, depends on each recipe.

Moreover, the nutrition fact of taco salad will make you pleased of it because you don't get only the vitamins and minerals from the veggie but also get the protein and carbohydrate from other ingredients. Thus, let's try to make this easy salad together with me!
