Treasure Tip: For an impressive presentation, serve this salad in flour tortilla shells. Brush both sides of 12- or 16-inch flour tortillas with melted butter. Press them into small ovenproof bowls; toast 5 to 8 minutes in a 375~ oven. Unmold the tortillas; place them directly on the oven rack until they are crisp and toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
