When I think of a taco salad I think of lettuce, meat, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, some guac and sour cream, all lovingly placed in a flour tortilla shell that has been deep fried to resemble a bowl. That's what I think of...
My first clue should have been when she asked me if I wanted it ala cart. I was a bit puzzled as I thought taco salad was a bit of a stand alone...but hey, what do I know.
When she brought me my plate there was one taco. Now I have to admit it was a DELICIOUS looking taco. It was in a soft shell that was puffy. The meat looked tantalizing. It really looked good. But it was not a taco salad. My husband asked the gal, does this look like a taco salad to you?
She apologized and whisked away the taco and returned with a hard shell taco.
