I used all fresh veggies, and LOVE the appearance of this pretty Summery salad, but the dressing wasn't very appealing to me. After tasting, I tried increasing the lime juice, as it seemed too "oily." It also seemed too salty, so next time I'll decrease the salt to 1/4 tsp. (maybe it just needs to sit for an hour or so, to meld the flavors - ?). I WILL make this again -- (MIGHT try substituting light mayo or Miracle Whip instead of olive oil, decrease salt, increase lime juice, . . . .) I'll keep experimenting with it til I get it to suit my taste, because it is so pretty that it makes an excellent Summer side dish. Oh! and next time I'm going to add black beans (and some coarsely chopped red onion) and garnish with avocado slices.
