    Was wonderful with fajitas! I made my salad with green onions, and used nonfat yogurt. Adding milk wasn't necessary. Easy to make, & everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe!  -  23 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a yummy salad to serve with a main Mexican dish. Here's a tip so your salad doesn't get soggy - quarter the tomatoes and squeeze the seeds/juice out before adding to salad.  -  20 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used "Easy Guacamole" and sour cream for the dressing and this recipe turned out very yummy. Will definitely make it again.  -  03 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
