  • Pour vinaigrette over all the ingredients.
  • Mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Other Optional Ingredients:
Nopales, green beans, peas, carrots, pecans, walnuts, celery, or pickles.
Swap it Out:
  • You can also use lime or lemon juice.

Taste for salt. Notice how there is no salt used in this recipe. That is because the olives and capers are salty. You can add more salt if you like.
