Total time 30 mins

Makes about 7 cups (serving size: 1 cup)

Lupe Romero Vidal served this mild, creamy-crunchy salad to round out a hearty comida (lunch) at her hacienda in Hidalgo, Mexico. Along with a platter of avocados scooped from their skins, it mellowed the impact of the spicy pork carnitas and fiery salsas.
