Reviews for Southwestern Salad
"I made it just as it was written and we really liked it and it was so quick and easy and a good meatless meal with a good amount of fiber!"
"I served this for a family soup and salad get together. Fritos that were on top did soften a bit, but adding additional Fritos when served as a leftover just adds an additional layer of crunch! Not boring and not too spicy for the kids."
"Served as the main course. My husband works construction so when he comes home for dinner he wants something that will "stick to your ribs". This salad did that."
"Made salad as directed but substituted Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch dressing for the Catalina...fabulous!"
