Eat to the Beat: Frito Salad

by Jessica on March 2, 2008

After reading Elly’s post about her “Eat to the Beat” challenge, I figured this was as good a time as any to start participating in different challenges. Since I love the bluesy sound of Polk Salad Annie, written by Tony Joe White and performed by Elvis, I decided to make “Frito Salad Annie”. ūüôā I threw a surprise 30th Anniversary Party for my parents and it went perfectly with the¬†Mexican menu!¬†I also got to use my new food processor for the first time to shred the carrots! How did I ever live without this thing?!?!
