one of the best salads I've ever had. Added jalepenos and avacado to teh salad, and used olive oil, a little white vinegar and a glop of sour cream to make the dressing thicker, it was PERFECT!


I found this recipe a couple of months ago and made it in April for my Bunko group of 12 women! It was a super hit and they all wanted the recipe. The dessing makes the salad hands down!! We will definately be making this again!

Then let me be the first reviewer. I customized up to 42 servings and served it on a large tray in a buffet line with some other mexican dishes. Made it pretty much as stated in the recipe. I'd say it did the job and they ate it all. I only got a little bit of scrapings that were left for me at the end (I usually eat last when I make these big dinners), so my rating is based on the fact that they ate it all and seemed happy. It did make a very nice presentation because it was quite spread out instead of confined to a bowl and turned out to be a very visually appealig dish to open up a buffet line.
