      LOVED THIS! I made a half a batch and it made 3 huge dinner size salads. You could easily serve this to 4 folks with some taco meat or BBQ chicken or leftover fajita meat on top too! I am putting this one in the favorites folder. The only changes I made were to add some corn (and would do it again), used half zucchini and half yellow squash, and to the creamy dressing I added a little chili pepper, cumin and oregano. Awesome vegetarian food. Thanks for sharing.

      This was FANTASTIC, I had never tried a mexican salad before, now I know what I was missing! Even though it didn't contain sour cream it really tasted like it was added. What a wonderful flavor. Next time I'll remove the cucumber seeds, or cut them into thicker slices, because that evening the cukes were weeping. Thank You Jacqueline30!!

      Wonderful, delicious, salad! It makes a huge amount so I would cut in half next time, hated to throw it away but by the next day it was fairly soggy. Probably a good idea to cut all veggies thick. Will keep this recipe handy at all times, everyone raved about the flavor. Thank you!
