    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    Trying to reduce sugar carbs and still have a great salad. The dressing for this is slightly spicy and delicious! If you can afford the carbs you can toss in a 15 oz can of pinto beans, drained and rinsed.

      This didn't really do it for me. The dressing was too bland. I had to dress it up by adding medium salsa, garlic salt, and extra of the spices already listed. After all those additions, it wasn't too bad, but still not great.
