Very yummy! A great take on an old favorite! (Next time I am going to add sliced black olives) :)

My whole family loved this and we have had it several times. We didn't add the jalapeno pepper just our taste preference. I have two teenage boys that loved this salad too!

This was a great meal. The pineapple adds a sweet taste. The combination of flavors was great. My husband and teenage boys asked for it again.
