DH liked this more than I did but it was an interesting taste to try for me too. I used crushed red pepper and actually might use more next time. The heat came after the sweet was almost gone and stayed with you. The shredded fruit and veggies were a good texture and altho it smelled vinegary, I didn't have that taste. I used all four suggested fruits/veggies. Thanks for a fun one to try. Made for ZWT6 by a Looney Spoon Phoodie.
I made a half recipe of this salad for brunch. We were really divided on it, but with mostly positive comments. DH thought the honey was too prominent, while I thought the peanut butter was. But our toddler gobbled it up without complaint! :) We both LOVED the spice which came from cayenne, as I wasn't sure if the red pepper called for was crushed, ground or bell peppers. I decided against the bell pepper because the amount seemed too small for those and I thought DH would prefer the cayenne over large pieces of crushed red pepper. Unfortunately, I didn't have pear or cucumber on hand so I used granny smith apples and carrots only. Thanks for posting this super easy salad, Brenda! Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team X-tra Hot Dishes! :)
