Mexican Chopped Salad Potluck Contribution

My friend celebrated a birthday with a Mexican-themed party.  There even was a taco pinata!

I am in the midst (again) of trying to eat healthily and decided to make a recipe I found called Mexican Chopped Salad.  Like all the other “recipes” I share, this one just calls for chopping and mixing. I found the original recipe on www.thecafesucrefarine.com. It tastes fresh and healthy! I modified it a little based on the time and ingredients I have access to.
