The tortilla bowls are so cute. My son was really impressed with this recipe. And he liked the salad but we didn't tell him it was spinach. I omitted the mushrooms and onions. I used ranch dressing. Thanks Dough :) Made for 123 hit wonders

This was a nice salad with a pretty presentation. Diced the red pepper. Omitted the meat and most of the cheese, as this was accompanying an entree, but with it this would have made a main dish salad. Used baby spinach leaves, as I think those work better in salads.

Wonderful salad and would be great to make for wedding or baby showers!!! I made this as written with a few changes. I made it for 4 salads and used bacon for the ham and used mozzarella cheese and omitted the red onion as I used my Recipe #228781 dressing, which already had onion in it. I took it for a dinner at my cousin's house and it was a hit. Could also see adding garlic or other seasoning to the butter prior to coating the tortillas!! Thanks for sharing this great salad recipe. Made for PRMR.
