    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    This simple salad pairs wonderfully with any meal, but especially well with seafood. I call the salad, Ensalada Chilpancingo; Chilpancingo is the capital of Pacific Coastal Guerrero in Mexico.

      I love salad and this one is packed with wonderful flavors! I really enjoyed the zest and spice combined. Made exactly as recipe calls for and thought it was delish. I will definitely make this one again! Thanks for a *keeper* Made for ZWT3 ~V

      Such a good salad for anytime, not just with a mexican meal. I subbed balsamic as I didn't have sherry wine vinegar and I left out the jalapeno since DH can't handle peppers. I used queso blend for the cheese. I had crushed chips on mine and I think the lime gave it that zing you just got to have. Wonderful salad.
