This was so unusual that I just had to try it. It was wonderful! I fixed it with a BBQ pork dinner and the flavors went together so well. Thanks for posting this one, more people ought to try it - especially with summer BBQs.

Fixed this with a mexican dish. Oh my goodness. Quite likely one of the best salads I have ever fixed. I didn't even eat any of the mexican entree, I just ate this. Definitely a keeper.

Every time I serve this, I get asked for the recipe. It is better the next day and I like to use the small grape tomatoes in it, as they are sweeter. Also, I have used the mixed Mexican cheese, shredded, several times and it was "fantastically" received. This is very rich and a little bit goes a very long way. Use a large ice cream scoop (for a round serving) or an empty tuna can to make a "stacked salad mold"; place it on a bed of lettuce with extra salsa and guacamole on the side. Great luncheon dish! Thanks so much for the terrific recipe!
