I really like how beautifully this presents. I have found several recipes for Christmas Eve salad, and all are gorgeous to look at and have an unusual combination of flavors. I have not decided yet which version I like best. I will be taking this to a Mexican theme holiday party. It isn't just beautiful but delicious and healthy as well.
