Mexican Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
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.
