I first saw this recipe in our Omaha, Nebraska paper a few years ago," relates Joanna Lonnecker. "It's ideal for family get-togethers of all kinds. Hearty enough to serve during winter, this salad always brings back memories of summer picnics!"

"If you can find them in your produce dept of grocery store, buy Anaheim or Poblano chile's. Take them home & roast them. You can roast on your grill or over a gas burner on a stove. Let the skin blister, a little charring is good. Put in a ziploc, seal, let sit for 30 minutes. Peel skin off, chop chiles and use them in the recipe. This adds a new level of flavor vs. the canned."
