I found this while I was looking for a recipe to take to a work picnic. I really didn't know how I was going to feel about mayo and salsa together, but I thought this looked so easy cheap and quick that I couldn't pass it up, and I'm really glad I didn't! I got a lot of compliments, and I'm glad that I set some back for us to eat at home because we really enjoyed this! Thanks for posting!

I took this zesty salad to a neighborhood picnic and it was soon GONE! Easy to make and delicious! I used canned diced tomatoes w/green chilies and it worked well. Thanks for posting.
