This simple recipe just provided a marvelous summer salad dinner. With the exception of making less of the dressing out of personal preference it was made as directed. I loved the addition of the lime juice, it added a great spark to the flavors. It was made in the early morning and sitting in the fridge all day it was well marinated, chilled and delicious.
