"I've made this I don't know how many times. Everyone loves it and wants the recipe. Great to use just as a salad or tortilla chips and salsa. We loved it both ways. So tangy, fresh and makes u feel like summer."

"This was a very good simple salad, but I have several other recipes that are very similar, but with a little more kick. Not bad, just not my personal favorite."
