a very nice salad, could use a lettle less pepper though. But my mom and dad LOVED the recipe and cleaned their plates

Made half a recipe (& although I used all the ingredients listed, I did reduce the jalapeno pepper to less than 1/2 teaspoon) & really enjoyed the sweet dressing ~ AND it was spicy enough for us! I even had some candied lemon peel from when I made some several months ago! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Made & reviewed for a member of my group in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #17]

Just made this for Hidden Gem and really enjoyed it, they only change I made was to cut it in half as I'm the only one here to eat it. Had it for lunch with a slice of warm sourdough bread and it was perfect for this warm summer day. Directions simple to follow and a nice combination of sweet and spicy. Only thing I'd change next time is that it's a little sweeter than I personaly like so would probably cut the brown sugar in half next time.
