Make this salad as spicy or mild as you’d like! For a mild version, omit they cayenne pepper and jalapeno. For an even spicier version, add 1 total jalapeno peppers and 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

This is delicious chilled and also tastes great at room temperature.

Boost the flavor by adding any of the following delicious additions: chili powder, paprika, sweet corn kernels, feta cheese, avocado chunks, bell pepper, fresh parsley or other fresh herbs.
