There’s something satisfying about a large taco salad. You can even make it into a healthy dish by using lean ground beef and other low-fat ingredients. Often, a taco shell bowl is deep fried, which ruins the whole "healthy meal" thing. That doesn’t mean a taco salad has to be made with a deep-fried shell. You can bake taco salad shell bowls at home for ultimate freshness.
