some individuals may choose to season their chicken or meat, and i have found this seasoning to be quite tasty. seasoned meat is not required for this salad, just an option. if used, add to the meat while cooking or grilling on the stove top.
for these salads, i used round tortilla shells, chopped lettuce, ground beef, cooked corn, chopped red tomatoes, chopped black olives, chopped green onion, shredded cheddar cheese, or a selection of shredded cheeses, salsa, sour cream, and a red based salad dressing. store bought honey french dressing or Catalina dressing is very tasty on this salad.
using similar serving bowls adds to the festive nature of the presentation. these star bowls were purchased online at crate and barrel several years ago and are not available there today.
