Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a lovely holiday weekend! Today’s recipe is a healthy Mexican Spa Salad with Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette that I’ve been making and enjoying all Summer. The recipe was inspired by the Chop Chop Salad at Tocaya Organica, which I probably order about twice a week since they finally opened a location near my house in the South Bay. For those of you who don’t have a Tocaya near you, I bring you this delicious version you can make at home. I served this Mexican Spa Salad with a side of Siete Grain-Free Tortilla Chips, Guacamole, Pico de Gallo and Spa Girl Cocktails Vodka Martini with a hint of cucumber. If you’re like me and haven’t had time to take a spa vacay, I say bring the spa to you!
