This is a salad, I got from Guy Fieri's Collection on the Cooking Network Site. I have put it together for our New Years Day Buffet, I doubled the recipe and used a half of red, yellow and orange bell peppers. I also tossed in approx 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro. Tomorrow with the leftovers I might toss in a chopped jalapeno for zip.
