I very loosely followed this recipe and it turned out great! Saute'd the zucchini and onions in nonstick spray with salt and pepper. Added grilled chicken and served in warm tortillas for lunch. Scrumptous! Loved the dressing. Read More

Ok but not as good as it sounds. It is more like a garnish or salsa than a salad. Read More

I used 2 medium zucchini. It didn't go well at our party last weekend. I agree with the other review that it is more like a relish than a salad. Not a "keeper" as far as I am concerned. Read More

This was good. I love anything with avocado in it so this was right up my alley. I used homemade salsa instead of picante sauce fresh corn and fresh garlic plus extra sea salt to offset the sweetness of the raw corn. Definitely a keeper. Read More

Wow this was so delicious! I used a mild southwest salsa in place of the picante sauce and I cut the oil in half. Read More
