Favorite Mexican Salad

Favorite Mexican Salad

Made  times

"This has been a favorite since my childhood! I liked it before I even would eat salad! It's always a huge hit and goes especially great with outdoor gatherings (i.e grilling, barbeques, etc.). My husband and I often make a huge salad and split it for our dinner. It's very flavorful, filling, and colorful. I am often requested to bring this to gatherings with friends."

This has been a favorite of mine, to take to potlucks and picnics, for over thirty years!

YUMMY! I dont need to say anymore. I woulden't change a thing, except I substituted some of the tomato for salsa for more of a kick.
