This salad was easy to make, and tasted excellent. I didn't buy enough fresh papaya, so I used some from a can in light syrup, which actually worked out really well. And leftover tortilla strips make a good snack anytime!
Tasty and filling. Made it for a women's gathering and ladies loved it plus it is healthy and easy to make. Thank you!
I never waste my time writing a review, but this recipe was too good not to. Highly recommended!
Very good salad - I made the salad because the cover photo looked so great. As I was making it I hoped that I would like it - I did! So yummy. I liked the tortilla strips. I only used one pepper
Awesome and no guilt because it is so healthy....all the flavors in one dish make it one I will certainly be making again!
