It's All About the Presentation!

I just put this creation together to take to our church's fellowship meal this evening. 



It is just a simple taco salad -- made special by layering in a trifle dish.

I'm of the opinion that you can make just about anything look elegant with a trifle dish!

If you want to try this simple and delicious meal, perfect for a hot summer night at home or a covered dish dinner at church, this is what you do:

Prepare any or all of the following ingredients and set aside:

taco seasoned meat
shredded lettuce
shredded cheese
canned  black beans, rinsed and drained
chopped cilantro
chopped tomatoes
sliced black olives
sliced green onions
chopped cilantro
sour cream
guacamole
salsa
corn chips (for layering or to serve on the side)


Then grab your trifle dish and start layering the ingredients however you like, varying the colors and textures to create a work of art!  I started with the shredded lettuce, but you could also start with the black beans or the corn chips.  Top with sour cream and garnish with chopped tomatoes, black olives, green onions and cilantro.

Chill and serve with tortilla chips (unless you chose to include them).

This is Fun to make, Fun to serve, and Fun to eat!
