Well, my office had our annual holiday "gorgerama" today. I brought this in & it was a huge hit. At least 7 people complimented me, and I had numerous requests for the recipe. One co-worker left a note on my desk that the dish was excellent & another co-worker said it was the best dish she'd tasted at the party. Even though it wasn't an original recipe, of course, I enjoyed the kudos. Anyway, I drained the peas, beans, & corn in a colander & rinsed them under cold water. I drained the jalapeno peppers too but didn't rinse them. I used a red onion and substituted 2 chopped fresh tomatoes for the canned ones & a tsp. of minced garlic from a jar & some salt for the garlic salt. I recommend that you make it at least the day before. Next time I make it, as people say it gets hotter as it sits, I think I may make it 2 days before & then drain it right before serving (saving the dressing for any leftovers) so it's less liquidy. I didn't drain it this time as I'd made it the night before & wanted the ingredients to marinate.
