I make this recipe regularly Yesterday I added lime zest of 1/2 a lime plus the juice of 2 limes. (left over from making Key Lime Pie). My family declared it the best ever and exceptionally good. The consensus was to add the zest every time.

Those whose preferences lean toward the spicy will love this salad. Adjust the heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of jalapeño and chipotle chile.
