This was the perfect side for my Labor Day BBQ. I wanted something a little different and this was it. The lime dressing made it nice and zesty and I loved the idea of adding chiles and green olives. I will be making this again. The only things I did differently was I used red onion instead of white, added a little bit of fresh cilantro and to the dressing, added a teaspoon of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. I really enjoyed this salad and so did my family. Thanks Lars.
I MADE THIS FOR MY FOURTH OF JULY BBQ. FOLLOWED TH RECIPE EXACTLY. IT DID NOT HAVE A GOOD FLAVOR, IT WAS VERY GREASY. I AM NOT SURE WHY IT GOT GOOD REVIEWS.
I'm making it the 2nd time. My family really enjoyed it -- different, yet all the flavors come together nicely!
I cut the oil down to two tablespoons and used olive oil instead. Instead of powdered mustard I used dijon because I ran out of powdered. I think the powdered would be better.. I used a tablespoon of pickle relish with two cut up pickled jalapenos - yum. The green olives give it that salty kick that is just inspired. Great idea!
It took me about 40 minutes to prepare it (including cook-time) and I substituted the vegetable oil w/ olive oil and added cilantro like one of the other suggestions. Worth it!
DELICIOUS! I love this recipe. I used olive oil for the dressing rather than vegetable oil, and I think it added a little richness to it. Amazing, I will be making this again.
Recipes like this are why I love this site. Imaginative, simple, attractive, and tasty enough to be noticed on a crowded potluck table. Thanks!
