This hearty main-dish salad, sent in by Iola Egle of Bella Vista, Arizona, makes a great cool-weather entree. It's colorful, delicious and filled with the kind of heat that’s great after a chilly football game or hike. Best of all, you can have it on the table in half an hour!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2008

It was a pain to find the jalapeno pepper jelly, but worth it, because this salad was a hit at my house. You coul almost go with out the dressing, because of all the yummy toppings that this salad allready has going for it.
