Grilled Chicken & Mango Taco Salad

This delicious dish is simple to make, and looks great on the table.  Molds for making tortilla bowls are available from a wide range of manufacturers including one from Avon; however, if you do not have one, try this easy method to create your own.

First, you will need an oven-safe 4-6 quart bowl. Preheat your oven to 350° F. Next, heat a large tortilla from La Mesa Tortillas enough to allow it to be bendable. Place the bowl upside-down on your countertop. Coat both sides of the tortilla with cooking spray and place on the bowl. Place the bowl in the oven and bake for 10-12 min, until the tortilla is golden and crispy.

Ingredients for salad:
• 1½ cups chopped romaine lettuce
• ¼ cup halved cherry tomatoes
• ¼ cup or less sliced red onion
• 3 tbsp corn (grilled corn adds a great flavor)
• Sliced grilled chicken breast
• 1 tbsp sliced almonds (toasted) [optional]
• Mango Vinaigrette Dressing (available at MarthaStewart.com)
