This was just okay....My family didn't really care for it. I don't think that I'll be making this again, but thanks for sharing.

This salad is very good served over lettuce. I also used Doritos instead of corn chips and it added extra zing! It's very good!

Really great! I served with lettuce and sour cream. Definatly add the cilantro. The leftovers were great as a chunky dip.

I added black olives and served on shredded lettuce. My 10 yr old son didn't like the dressing. With the leftovers, I added salsa and sour cream - even better!!!

We definitely enjoyed this, but it works better as a dip than a salad. If I made again, would most likely serve with a scoop shaped corn chip rather than on top of them.

We make this recipe without the onions, use cheese cubes instead of shredded and add small pieces of green bell pepper. It is perfect for a day at the park or camping.
