very yummy!! i didnt have balsamic vinaigrette so i mixed 1/4 balsamic vinegar, a splash of olive oil, the juice of one lime, some cumin, chili powder and minced garlic & served with some bbq'd cajun flavored chicken breast. i chopped the leftover chicken (chicken breasts are so big these days!!) and tossed it with this leftover salad and had for lunch at work the next day after i heated it up in the microwave...2 great meals and its wonderful hot or cold!
I found this recipe and thought it would be a wonderful dish for a summer birthday party that I was attending. I was completely correct! Not only is it colorful and looks nice, it TASTES wonderful and is very, very filling. I do not like red peppers or balsamic vinegar and I love this recipe. The tastes just all blend very well together. I didn't make this recipe with the vinaigrette that was mentioned - instead I "made" one from a recipe and used 1/8c of olive oil and 3/8c of balsamic vinegar and put in a little garlic powder. It turned out awesome! Kudos to the creator of this recipe - it's a keeper!!
