Melanie's Story

This salad is a refreshing side dish or simply on its own. For a change, add 2 cans pinto beans (drained). I sometimes mix all ingredients together instead of layering. Feel free to add/delete ingredients.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Serve this in a clear bowl or trifle dish to show off this lovely salad to its fullest... then dig in and enjoy every flavorful bite! Perfect for parties or potlucks.
