Taco Salad


As I wrote in my menu plan post yesterday, this evening we're off to the After School Club Summer Party.  Instead of the usual cake competition, they moved the goalposts on us this year and made it a salad competition - so we had to put on our thinking caps and come up with something in a flash.  Here's DD9's entry...all ready for the judges!

I made sure to replace the tequila with water...just in case! :P
It's our attempt at a Taco Salad: kidney beans, red pepper, tomatoes, cucumber, sweetcorn and lots of lovely, crushed, crunchy tortilla chips...


With grated cheddar cheese, mild tomato salsa and crème fraîche on the side....which for me is the best part of the lot! ;D


Let's hope that DD9 has a winner on her hands!

Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend! :)

PS: She won!  And was over the moon! And was very pleased with her prize - which she shared with her best friend - a bottle of organic elderflower juice! ;D

This salad looks really tasty Diane. I think I'll have to give it a try. I'm a new reader to your blog and LOVE IT. I'm a flybaby and in one of those beautiful twists in life I'm connected with Scouts in Denmark also (even though I live in Australia). In fact I'm coming to Denmark in about 8 weeks to catch up with our Danish 'daughter' who we hosted last year on exchange. So, I'm loving all of the insights you give into Danish life. Fantastic blog. Thanks for the effort you put into it.

Hi Sandy and thank you so much for your lovely comment - it's comments like yours that make this blogging thing all worthwhile! :D

Funny about Flylady and the Danish Scouts. Isn't it a small world? ;D
