      I wanted to love this salad. It is easy to prepare and it is very colorful. I thought the taste, however, was a bit bland. I used the tomatillo salsa, but I was able to find it in medium heat because we prefer the kick (the store did not have chipotle, which I might have preferred). I think the salad as is, needs a little dressing up. Definitely a significant amount of salt and pepper, more red wine vinegar. Since I have a lot left over, I might experiment with our individual portions, such as adding sriracha or even possibly Dijon, to give it more of the flavor I'm looking for.

      A great summer salad well deserving of 5 stars. I served this with grilled chicken Grilled Greek Chicken Breasts , a green salad and garlic bread. I opted not to make the dish spicy using mild salsa and mozzarella cheese. We enjoyed this dish very much and will make it again very soon. Thanks for sharing.
