Estrellita Salad
July 04, 2011

We loved this salad. I made it pretty much like the recipe with a couple exceptions made solely on the basis of personal preference. Omitted green pepper because I don't like it. Omitted cheese because I didn't think it would add to the taste and thought I would save the fat/calories in this case. If I had used it I was thinking I might cube it rather than use shredded cheese. I also substituted the catalina dressing with a basic vinaigrette. I didn't have catalina dressing and the vinaigrette sounded so fresh tasting. Loved the fritos. I thought about adding tortilla chips but the fritos made the salad in my opinion. Even though I varied the recipe, I think it is an all-star recipe. I do hope to try catalina dressing at some point. I almost forgot - when I read the recipe I thought it had a can of black beans in it. Even though it didn't, I added them anyway and would definitely do so again! Thanks for sharing!
