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.
