Teacher's Caviar Recipe

Teacher's Caviar Recipe

I love the fresh flavors, colors and convenience of this dish. It adds fun to a workday lunch without adding inches to the waistline or putting a dent in the food budget. This can be served immediately or chilled in the morning and eaten at lunch time! It's delicious with baked tortilla chips or spooned over grilled chicken.—Ellen Finger, Lancaster, Pennsylvania
