Mexican Salad



Broken tortilla chips can be added to give this a little more crunch if desired.

    I’ve made this dish several times and this recipe seems so much easier. I like how you use dijon mustard in the recipe. Definitely one I will have to try. The flavors work well together and I’m sure I will enjoy the addition on dijon mustard. I too have a blog about food which is similar to yours. Here it is if you are interested:
