Used home raised Poblanos and Beaver Dam peppers we roasted & peeled and somehow a cup of red beans ended up in the bowl too - made for a FABULOUS side for our grilled blacktip shark Baja tacos!. Keeper recipe - the beans added a heartiness that was nice but will make next time without. Delicious - thank you for posting such a winner!

This is a cinch to make hours before serving and isn't it nice to know that a part of dinner only needs to be served! I enjoy everything that goes into this recipe so knew that it was going to be a hit for me before I started. I made it by the recipe using white wine vinegar and fire roasted red peppers. Made for Spain in ZWT 8.

This was a surprisingly tasty and light side salad. I made this exactly as posted, and thought the dressing might be a little bland. However, it really complemented the other ingredients and added just the right amount of flavor. This is very colorful and makes a lovely presentation. I enjoyed this as a side dish with some fresh tuna. Perfect summer meal. Made for ZWT8.
