      I made this salad for a vegan potluck and got compliments at the party. It's very fresh-tasting and goes perfectly with burritos or enchiladas as a side dish. I think the key is to get the right balance of lemon-lime juice and hot sauce in the topping. The hot sauce takes it from bland into Tex-Mex territory and is essential IMO, but add it slowly as a little goes a long way. I added a little olive oil to the dressing as well. Thanks for sharing, Katzen! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

      I loved it. I just probably would use less lime/lemon juice. At the last minute I couldn't use any of my cilantro (the best part), so I'm still very impressed with how this turned out without it. I will make this again and load it up. Very healthy, yummy and summery!
