From my co-author of The DASH Diet Cookbook cookbook, Chef Anna Zulaica: “Growing up, my mother used to make this salad for my sisters and me as a side dish to many traditional Mexican dishes. It is simple, easy to make, nutritious, and versatile.”
This light, tasty salad is simple to prepare. It’s so good in the late summer months when all of the vegetables in season, you’ll wan to have it with all of your entrees!
