I’ve had a bad hankering for Southwestern food, lately. I can’t say this is unusual but it’s been intense. I’ve had southwestern meals about 3-4 times in the past week. I must say this salad was the highlight.
Full of amazing flavor and texture this salad is everything I ever dreamed of. Exaggerate much? No I’m being totally serious! I could eat this salad everyday and be so content with life.
This dressing is over the time creamy and the tanginess of the lime makes it so unique and satisfying. I had a similar dressing many years ago at a Tex-Mex restaurant with my mom. I can’t for the life of me remember what state or town we were in but I can picture the inside of the restaurant and sitting there with my mom and our amazing meal clear as day. When I tasted this dressing it took me right back to that meal. I was so happy.
I will probably be making this at least once a week – so get ready family for some Southwest salads! 😉 I hope you love this salad and dressing as much as I do. It comes with super humble ingredients and can be prepared days in advance (just store dressing separately)
