Mexican Picnic Salad


Ensalada Mexicana de Dia de Campo

Found this recipe actually on a facebook post on my wall and thought, “hummmm, wonder what this would taste like with jalapenos or serranos with cilantro in it. Made it, loved it, here it is! Give it a try for something different on your next picnic, tailgate party, or cookout!
