This is meant to be eaten with plain white rice. No one ever believes me but as soon as they try it they are hooked. My DH loves it. Last time I was lazy and I made it with canned ingredients it was almost as good.

This was wonderful! I did a vegetarian twist on this salad without the egg and used green onion, olive oil and a few fresh cilantro leaves! Thank you for this recipe!

I made this for a potluck and thought it was just OK. It was too tart for my taste. My husband on the other hand thought it was fine.

Wonderful blend of flavors and colors! I used canned diced beets and did not cook the carrot; I grated fresh carrot into the salad instead. Tasty, tasty!
