Sonoran Salad

Easy and pretty. Present the salad in its "before" stage to your guests, and then toss. I usually "cheat" and add different vegetables as needed or desired. You can always switch this up and make it as colorful as you wish. And you can certainly change up the meat element too. Chicken added to this is great. I know someone who added duck and thought it was amazing. The "deconstructed" idea makes it beautiful before tossing and serving. Use this as a palette for your imagination and go nuts!
