I made this delicious salad for a family birthday party yesterday to go with our hostesses yummy Mexican casserole. This makes a very colourful & delicious salad to add a little zing to any meal. If you like fish tacos, this would be a hit as the perfect side dish. It also makes a really easy lunch to take to work or school.
