Hot Days, Cold Eats: Mexican Layered Salad

We're in the middle of another heat wave in my neck o' the woods. Ugggh. It actually gave me a migraine. I seriously contemplated a move to Alaska. I like salmon. The whole three men for every one woman thing is intriguing too ;) Speaking of... did you know you can burn 10 calories for every 10 minutes of kissing. Sex three times a week burns between 7,500-15,000 calories per year. This is the kind of math I like.

OK back to the other kind of heat... I was miserable for most of the day but when the sun went down I made this salad, ate it outside on the patio, listened to a fierce female music marathon and all was right with the world. Nothing like a cold salad on a hot day.
