      This is a great salad! Unfortunately I didnt have the chipotle, but I am sure that would have made it even more amazing. The dressing has great complex flavor, very good. I think it would be good with some chopped up avacado, maybe 1/2 can of corn. A big winner in our house!

      Wow was this ever a wonderful salad...the dressing makes it, I doubled it and I am so glad I did. The only thing I changed is I used 1 tsp. diced up poblano pepper instead of chipotle and it still was out of this world....
