I’m new to jicama, a root vegetable that’s popular in Mexican and Southwestern cooking. It lends plenty of crunch to this no-fuss salad and blends well with the other zippy ingredients.—Deborah Williams, Peoria, Arizona
I was raised in Southern California, not far from the Mexican border. That explains why I like Mexican food as much as I do. Much of my cooking...even when I'm making "American dishes"...is heavily influenced by the kinds of foods and flavors I tasted as a youngster growing up just north of the border.
"Mojitos are a fun summery drink and the inspiration behind this refreshing side salad. No rum was used in my recipe, but it certainly could be added to the vinaigrette.” —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
"This taco salad has all the flavors, but it’s so much easier to prepare and eat because it’s not served in a shell. If you like spicier food, use medium or hot salsa and add another jalapeno." —Tari Ambler, Shorewood, Illinois
You get an explosion of Southwestern flavor in every bite of this deliciously different salad. It's a favorite for kids of all ages since it mixes beans and cheese, tasty vegetables and crisp corn chips.
—Jerri Moror, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
I came across this recipe while spending a winter in Arizona. Now as soon as we return home each spring, our grandchildren are waiting for me to make these refreshing salads. To save time, bake the salad shells in the morning. Cool: store in an airtight container.—Betty Johnson, Olympia, Washington
