The Pin Junkie: Southwest Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

I love finding new recipes on Pinterest!  They're almost always good.  This southwest salad with honey lime dressing was no exception.

I take my lunch to work and I've fallen into a rut of packing the same thing everyday.  I was seriously ready to try something different, so off to Pinterest I went.  I took inspiration from two different pins and altered the recipes to create my own.  This southwest salad makes a great lunch, not only because it's absolutely delicious, but it's quick and easy to make.  Just dump everything in a bowl and call it done!  I love that I can make it ahead of time on Sunday and have something ready to go for Monday and Tuesday.   I can just grab it from the fridge and go.

 Doesn't it look good?

You can serve the salad as it is, but I'm thinking it would also be yummy over a bed of crisp lettuce.  I also really liked it as as salsa with corn ships!
