This has become my go-to salad. It's easy, tastes terrific, and stays well. I substituted dried cranberries for the raisins and like that even better.

Very good and colorful recipe. I thought there was going to be too many peppers - not so. I was also leary of the raisins and you hardly notice they are in there. Next time I will experiment with the dressing. The Italian was a little harsh.
