This was delicious! If you wanted to, you could substitute the salad ingredients to suit you (think avocado, etc.). This went great with our Mexican themed night. Ole!

We have made this quite often for a variety of outings. It is well received at every outing. Healthy, yummy and beautiful:)

The dressing was fresh, light and delicious! I used parsley instead of cilantro, simply because I don't like cilantro. I'll make this again.

This turned out well! Loved the dressing. It was light and tasty, and all the ingredients were something I always have on hand. I would definately make this again!
