      We loved this salad - what a great meal for a blazing hot day. Super tasty and the dressing is awesome. I did have a mini-meltdown while making it though. I am not as familiar as some with Mexican and southwest flavours so when I saw chili and cumin to taste I was at a loss as to where to start. I posted in the Q &A forum here and was given a rough ratio of 2-1 chili powder to cumin. I'm really glad I checked because I would have blithely used equal parts cumin and chili which I gather could have made this very nasty. For other 'beginner' Tex Mex cooks I used 1 Tbsp of chili (it was a mild one) and just a little over 1 tsp each of cumin and garlic powder.
      Thanks for the great meal! Made for The Bistro Babes ZWT 8

      Excellent salad. I did not have any kidney beans so I used black beans instead. Also was out of black olives. I really like the dressing with the combination of the mayonnaise and salsa, I used more cumin than suggested! Will definitely make this again. Made for ZWT8 and The Wild Bunch.

      Made for your Football Pool win & finding this recipe among your collection was like going home to Dallas to dine w/old friends. All but 1 of these ingredients are staples for me, so I will admit up front that I left out the kidney beans (not a fan at all). I was otherwise in Tex-Mex heaven. Thx for making losing the Football Pool seem like a reward. :-)
