      I must say we were pleasantly surprized!! This was very good!! I tried it because I was looking for something low fat and to be honest wasn't sure we would like it. I did have to use a mango as I had run out of papaya and the jalapeno was more green than red, the other thing I had to leave out the parsley, just didn't have any, all and all this was very tasty all the ingredients seem to compliment each other and the dressing was outstanding, lots of taste. I would make this again even for company because it is different, the only change I might make would be to leave out the squash, I didn't feel it added much to the flavours. I must admit I added salt also and some pepper. Good luck in the contest.
