Salad Preparation

  • Place two bowls (oven safe) on a baking sheet upside down.
  • Warm tortilla in a microwave for about 20 seconds and lightly spray with oil. Drape the tortillas over each bowl. Pinch the sides to form a bowl shape. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees until the tortillas are golden and crisp. This takes about 8-10 minutes

  • Divide the salad between the two tortillas and top with the turkey mixture and remaining cilantro.
