Chick-fil-a sells a spicy southwestern salad that is very good. I saw this recipe and thought I would make it like theirs. This recipe was excellent. I did add chicken and green chiles. I will definitely make it again, and add maybe a little more spice. Thanks for the recipe.

I didn't add the celery, carrot, or endive. Very good and very easy. We pretty much ate this as a salad for 2 as a side.

Great twist on mexican salad fare - served at a Mexican themed dinner & got rave reviews. My family and I loved it. Beware though - this is an 'eat now' type of dish. Between the salsa, sour cream, and ranch, it will become soupy after awhile. Not good for leftovers.

This Salad was a hit at our church potluck. We had a Mexican Buffet and there were many salads, but this one was the only one that was completely gone. I doubled it and it was great.

This sounds like a good start on a Mexican salad, but when I make it, I will add cilantro, avocado, diced red onion & sliced black olives. These additions will make it the ultimate Mexican Fiesta Salad.

I made this into a main dish salad by adding garlic lime chicken cubes previously prepared and cooled; delicious!

I add a sweet onion to mine. Very good for potlucks, even better at home.
