The prettier the salad the more delicious, am I right? As someone who personally doesn’t get too excited about salads, I can rave about this Fiesta Salad ALL DAY LONG! Why? Because it’s full of so many yummy ingredients, it tastes great, and it’s filling!!! If I am ever going to make a salad, it is going to be a hefty one, and this one does not disappoint. This recipe is also featured in my brand new 15 recipe ebook, “Let’s Taco-Bout It”, a Mexican inspired ebook filled with delicious (gluten and dairy free) recipes that the entire family will love! The Fiesta Salad has to be one of my favorites in the book (along with the HEALTHIER CRUNCH WRAP recipe…. yup, I made a healthy version of the Taco Bell classic).
