Romaine salad with chicken, apples, dried cranberries and walnuts in a honey-mustard dressing. It has all the elements I like in a satisfying salad including a full array of competing flavors and textures that make it altogether delicious. Every bite reminds me that fall is here to stay awhile and makes me smile wider and wider.
There’s only one thing in the world that can abate my craving for a taco besides an actual taco. . . that’s a taco salad. All the very same things tacos are loved for tossed together to make the most delicious hot mess of a salad. Iceberg lettuce, taco meat, cheddar cheese, black olives, tomatoes, red onion and tortilla chips.
