Topopo Salad

Topopo salad, named for an old Indian word meaning volcano, is a specialty of restaurants in South Tucson, Arizona. While specific ingredients differ, the common denominator of all topopo salads is height. Atop a crisp tostada, lettuce and vegetables are dressed and formed into a volcano-shaped mound with columns of cheese, carrots, and celery running up the side. Mealworthy versions also include carne seca, roast chicken, or shrimp; and garnishes can include tomato, olives, avocado, and festive colored peppers.
