This is a refreshing crisp salad made with shredded iceberg, garden tomatoes, and scallions. Dressed with a spicy, smoky pepper dressing. This is a take off of a salad my DH ordered in a 5 star restaurant. He was surprised to see a salad made with iceberg. Something I don 't buy often.

This was a delightful side dish to shrimp fajitas. I did scale down the salad for just the two of use, but made the full recipe of the dressing. Now I have a great dressing for more salads this week. Thank you Rita for sharing the recipe.

What a great change for the usually mundane salad. I prepared it as posted but left out the chili pepper. It was still plenty hot and spicy but loved the contrast with the crisp iceburg lettuce. I let my guests add thier own dressing, not knowing if they liked spicy hot flavors. Turns out that everyone thought it was great. This will make a wonderful addition to wraps that I make for lunch!

We did love it! nice and spicy, left a nice tingle in the mouth and looked pretty too. Really liked the dressing, I served it separately because I wasn't sure how we would like it, didn't have to worry at all it was great! I was out of parsley and cilantro so left it out, used white wine vinegar and splenda with a jalepeno chili and the chipotle chili in adobo. I was actually looking for a full meal salad for a light supper, this sounded so good couldn't resist it, so added cooked chicken to it. It made a delicious supper!! we will make it again, thanks Rita for posting it.
