Tasty Tuesday – Mexican Salad

This week’s offering is a simple and tasty Mexican Salad. I love this because it is so easy to prepare and served with cornbread it hits the spot any time of year. The original recipe is from Simply Vegetarian, but I’ve modified it somewhat over time and you can certainly adjust portions to fit your particular taste buds.

  1. I have to agree with the quote about Mexican food! I do love it in any form. πŸ™‚ I make a nice Mexican Salad (we call it taco salad) and it’s similar with the addition of avocado. But I don’t usually add rice, and I think that’s a great addition! I am going to try that next time!
