It may look just like your ordinary salad as it is similar to ‘Taco salad’, but it’s more than just an ordinary salad, though – It’s Vegetable Haystacks! You can be adventurous by putting any kinds of veggies you like with it. If you want to stay trim, healthy and slim this recipe is for you. I love it too!
