Recipe by carole in orlando

One of the nicest Cuban restaurants in Florida shared their popular salad with Food and I wanted to share it with Zaar. It is our favorite salad when we go to the Columbia.

I can see why this salad is popular - it's a wonderful combination making for a lovely salad ... and I didn't have to go to Florida to enjoy. (Much as I would like too!) Made using turkey strips - I'm going to give shrimp a go next time around. Yes this is definetely a repeatable! Thank you Carole.
