I really heart Mexican food. Mexican food makes our menu quite often. However, I always have a problem figuring out what to make with a Mexican main dish. I do cilantro rice quite often. Sometimes I do fresh pineapple. Other times we do refried beans. For awhile I have been looking for a new Mexican food side dish.
While food blog stalking, I found a recipe for Mexican Fruit Salad and decided to give it a try. SO deliriously happy I did. I found a new side dish for my Mexican meal. Now, I do not know the authenticity of this salad...but I do know it is yummy.
So if you are looking for a new side to go with your favorite Mexican meal like Honey Lime Enchiladas or Baked Creamy Taquitos, then put this in your cooking arsenal.
