    Merlot's Note:

    This is a great make-ahead dip and a welcome change from the basic cheese and sour cream type dips that show up a every gathering. The nice thing is the longer it marinates, the better it gets. Frees up your time for other dishes. It's also a very "forgiving" recipe...get creative and add or delete vegetables to suit your taste. I particularly like to serve this with Fritos but again, choose the chip of your choice. :-)

      Ihave tried this and took it to work as many are on some type of diet and it fits their plan too. If you are watching your weight use the WOW tortilla chips! I even liked it alone with no chips!

      I didn't even need to wait for the 24 hours in the fridge to rate this. Excellent! Oh my goodness it just really has a wonderful taste. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I could eat this as a salad without the chips. Thanks.

      The sauce is the key!!! We eat this just as a salad.. I use what I have in cupboard for beans, peas, onions and peppers...The longer it sits the better it becomes. I have also sub-ed honey for the sugar and it was just as good.. also used olive oil
