Southwest Cilantro Lime Salad

Southwest Cilantro Lime Salad

This comes from Get In My Belly and looks so delicious I just had to make it and loved it so much I had to share it with you all as well!!  I am a veggie lover, so YES, this would be a meal for me, but you can always add some leftover chicken or BBQ steak from another meal to add some meat for all you meat lovers.  Then you may just want to fire up that BBQ, hey, it’s summertime right?  BBQ a steak, some sausage or chicken and enjoy!
