Made this for dinner tonight. Normally, my husband would not like salad for dinner. He loved it, as did I. Will definitely make this again.

This was amazing!! It’s similar to the Mexican style salad at McDonald’s but obviously this is so much better! 

FANTASTIC! Easy and refreshing, snd filling! My husband and i loved it!
