Red & Green Southwest Salad

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Mmmm, fresh veggies in a southwestern-flavored lime-cilantro vinaigrette! This cool salad goes with all types of grilled foods, Mexican dishes like enchiladas, black beans and rice, just about anything! And if you get tired of plain old red and green, add some golden peppers or tomatoes for something a little different. Prep time includes chilling/blending time.
