Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Make ahead. Great blend of flavors for a zippy salad, spread, or dip. Be sure to allow for refrigeration to get the best melding of ingredients. Can't remember the origin of this recipe; made some ingredient and amount changes. For dip: double the dressing. Cooking time is chilling time.
