This is more than a salad. This is a great topping for nachos, tortillas, burgers, a baked potato or even an omelette. It is addictive. If you have any leftovers in your refrigerator, throw them in here...steak, chicken, turkey, salmon, or any veggie would be a delicious addition. I find that I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, so this is a great "go-to" recipe to keep handy. It can be ready to eat in 10 minutes. It will also be great the following day.
