Layered Mexican Salad
This layered summer salad tastes even better than it looks.
Why This Recipe Works
We quickly discovered that Layered Mexican Salad is only as good as the ingredients you put into it. Fresh cherry tomatoes were a must, as were ripe avocados, as the texture and flavor of underripe avocados was off-putting. Tasters preferred crisp, cool romaine to iceberg lettuce, and canned black beans tasted fine once rinsed and drained.
