Delicious salad. The dressing has just enough sweetness to off set the vinegar.

This was easy to make. I think next time I will try with fresh herbs. I did like the slight heat and sweet of these.

The first time I made this my family was "eww" before they even tasted it. I had planned on having it for supper. Needless to say by the time supper time came there was barely enough left.

This salad reminds me of a dish we had in Fort Lauderdale while we were on our honeymoon. So good and fresh!

This was very good. The only change I made was to add green onions in place of the onions.

I thought this was a super recipe. I will definately make it again. I want to try it with some jalapenos.

Loved this salad. I did skip the garlic powder since we are not great fans of garlic.
