I lived in Mexico for 2 years and ate this often. It isn't to go just with beef, it's great with fish, chicken, or a non meat meal. Whatever you like basically. Try in a tortilla with griddled halloumi and a spicy salsa

This is a great accompliment to a Mexican night and my friends loved it. Lots of flavour for a salad and really crisp. Would def recommend.

Served this with mexican steaks and potatoes for our mexican night. Was very tasty, jalapenos gave a real kick. However it was a bit runny with all the lime juice and the middle of tomatoes. Would still do it again though, thoroughly enjoyed the unusual flavours, didnt and wouldnt change a thing.
