If you enjoy Nachos or Tacos, you will love this layered Mexican Salad that is my sister in law Amy's party go to !. She made it this year for her neighbor's Super bowl Party , and as usual there was not a morsel left over! It's kind of her signature dish, and I always look for it when ever she has a party!
It's easy to assemble, tastes fabulous, and is made from real food including fresh chopped tomatoes and scallions.!
And I love that it simply requires assembling, not cooking.
If you have unexpected company drop by, you can whip this chopped salad up in 15 minutes.
Make it as spicy or mild as you like- that part is based on individual taste. Personally, I like my food on the milder side, but feel free to give it the kick that you like!
You'll love the beautiful presentation, and that it meets vegetarian and gluten free standards!
It's a layered salad type appetizer, so you will need to serve it with some sort of chip or raw veggie. I like raw carrot wedges which are sold in bags in most supermarkets.
**You will also need to use a spring form pan if you would like to remove it from the bowl!
