This salad's tangy dressing will have everyone asking for seconds. Guests like it because it's different, and I enjoy it because I can add whatever vegetables I have.—Jennifer Villarreal, Texas City, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 11, 2013

"I thought that this would be an interesting tasting salad, but I did not care for it at all. The lime juice flavor was too overwhelming and it was just missing something to give it another note of flavor. I have similar salad recipes that I prefer, so I will not be making this one again."
