The Salad Bar
This month The Salad bar is celebrating the taste of Mexico in our salads! Thanks Wendy from The Weekend Gourmet for being our hostess and The Salad Bar Tender!
I thought I’d add a light chicken Tostada to the Salad Bar this month. A very simple layered or tossed version featuring all the goodness for lunch, snack or even dinner!

    What a beautiful salad! Lovely colour and of course the tortilla is such a great addition to the texture of the salad.

  6. Ohhhh look at those crispy tortillas! I grew up eating tortillas fried in oil on taco night, and I still do it that way. Sure, it’s not the healthiest, but it’s just once in awhile. Microwaved flour tortillas just can’t compare :)
