Trifled Taco Salad

I have fallen in love with these little trifle dishes! Have you seen them? They are the perfect size (12 oz.) for holding a main dish salad, layered breakfast, or any type of layered dessert. I can’t stop coming up with new ways in which to use them. I love using these dishes because portioning things out perfectly is a no-brainer, and because we eat first with our eyes, and serving food this way is so visually appealing.
One of the salads I made was this adorable mini trifled taco salad. I had such a good time putting this together, did it early in the day, shoved it into the fridge, and enjoyed it for supper that night when I was too tired to prepare anything. I have to say that I felt pretty special eating my fancy schmancy layered salad.
I continue to experiment, so stay tuned for more, meanwhile, pick yourself up some of these dishes, you will not be sorry. You really don't need a recipe for this. Just have a look at the picture below and layer to your heart’s content. Feel free to layer whatever tickles your fancy. If you have a lot of dry ingredients, as I did, you may want to layer the dressing in twice (as you can see from the picture). If not, then just add it somewhere in the middle. There are really no set rules, just have fun.

My daughter got me a single one of those glasses several years ago and I always intended to get more. I never thought about layering taco salad in a glass, but that is such a great idea. It looks so good!

I love these dishes! I don’t even know why I got this one, and it sat in the cupboard for so long that it was dusty! Now I am using it for everything. More recipes to come to help give you ideas on ways in which to use yours. I think you’re going to be needing more than that one. :-)
