I had this taco salad at my friend Aurora's house for book group a couple years ago. It was so delicious! The distinctive thing about it is the Catalina dressing. It makes the salad a little sweet and tangy. I like to make it all the time, especially in the summer. This time when I made it I tried something new. I made a taco salad bowl from a tortilla. It ended up kinda small, but fun, and the kids liked it.Aurora Dascanio
