This colourful salad bowl is our take on the cuisine of Santa Fe, New Mexico - fresh flavours featuring (mild) chilli peppers in a fusion of Mexican, Spanish and South Western style food. The chilli (or "chile" as they have officially recorded their preferred spelling) is this state's largest agricultural crop and features in most of their dishes. Waiters in New Mexico will ask you "red or green?" referring to red or green chilli when you order a dish. If you'd like both, you reply with "Christmas"!
