Spicy Mexican Summer Salad Recipe


Looking for a good summer salad to serve at a Barbecue, potluck, picnic, or get together? Spicy Mexican Summer Salad is full of crunchy fresh vegetables: corn, jicama, grape tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers, and fresh cilantro, along with canned black beans and avocado; they’re tossed with a slightly spicy creamy dressing made easy with bottled red and green salsa. Together they make a colorful presentation.
””
This salad goes well with anything grilled; it also goes well with sandwiches in the picnic basket. Because yogurt is used instead of sour cream or mayonnaise in the dressing, the only real fat in the salad is from the avocado. The salad is fairly low-calorie, but definitely filling and most definitely delicious!
