Boy was this good. I used cumin instead of oregano and served it with Spanish rice.

This was the second time I've made this, I skipped the sugar, added some diced red peppers, and used Double Gloucester cheese because it is a much more flavourful cheese than cheddar. I like this salad a lot because it's easy to adjust the ingredients somewhat without ruining it.

Great to find 'non-packaged' seasoning in recipes, especially for those of us who prefer to go lo-salt and no-MSG! Thanks.
