Mexican Chopped Salad


This is recipe number three for our Cinco de Mayo celebration and it is a very easy Mexican Chopped Salad.  I love looking at Pinterest for recipe and party ideas.  I have lots of cookbooks and magazines, but I tend to turn to Pinterest more often then not.  I found the inspiration for this recipe for Mexican Chopped Salad at The Cafe Sucre Farine.  I used their salad dressing recipe and made up the rest of the salad and it was truly amazing.  It is a great light salad, especially when you are eating  a heavier meal.  I know you are going to love it as much as we did.  The flavors are so light and bright and Yum!

    1. Hi Julie,
      It is a really good salad. I'm not a big lettuce eater, so vegetables and a good dressing are something I always love to eat.
      Have a great Cinco de Mayo!
      It's so good hearing from you.
