Harvest Salad in Crispy Tortilla Bowls

The perfect fall salad where you will enjoy eating the bowl.

These are my favorite simply because its the ideal transitional salad from summer to fall and BONUS, you get to eat the bowl when you’re done! My family absolutely loved this concept. Just make sure you watch the tortillas at the end; one of mine burned. Also, if you don’t have an air fryer this also works in a mini oven or oven.

The ingredients are simple and go together so well. You can add in chicken too or sub in any cheese you have on hand. I also didn’t have pumpkin seeds aka pepitas, so I used sunflower seeds. The dressing is also a great recipe to have on hand for that lighter ranch flavor.
