    BecR's Note:

    A healthful snack, light meal, or appetizer--perfect packed in the picnic basket or cooler to take along on picnics or outings in the countryside. Serve in lettuce cups, spread onto whole wheat crackers, stuff into whole wheat pita bread pockets, or eat as is. My DH really enjoys this salad, and prefers to "kick it up a notch" with extra cayenne. The recipe as written is meant to have only a subtle "kick", but you may increase or decrease the amount of cayenne to suit. Note: I like to make this dip several hours in advance, to allow the flavors to mingle. Enjoy!

      I really enjoyed this recipe! I halved the recipe for just me for lunch today. I added alittle diced celery along with the rest of the veggies which I just diced up and lefted to give a crunchy texture and used over shredded lettuce. I love the flavor and the cayenne gives a nice touch. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe!
