The Edible Salad Bowl

I am not one to make New Year's resolutions or 'go on a diet' but let's face it, it's time to tighten the belt and stop the feasting.  Salad will feature heavily on the menu for next few days and to make it a bit more interesting, I've made an edible salad bowl.


Of course, this is the perfect beginning to a taco salad but I am going to fill this with just a simple green salad. Here is how to do it:


Heat the oven to 375F/190C.  Take an ovenproof bowl and lightly rub the inside with a bit of vegetable oil.  I always use canola oil.


Take one large flour tortilla or sandwich wrap and gently place it into the oiled bowl.  Press it down into the bowl, carefully folding in the tortilla to make it fit. Put the bowl on a baking sheet and place it into the oven.  After about 15 minutes you should have a golden, crispy, edible salad bowl that looks something like this...


You can even make these a day or two in advance.  Just let them cool completely before placing the prepared bowls into an airtight container or freezer bag for storage.  Is it time for lunch yet?  I am starving!
