I first tried this dip/salsa at a work picnic. It was so good I had to have the recipe. A real hit with parties and large gatherings. Serve with Tostitos scoop chips for a hearty taste! The secret is in the marinade. Not a difficult recipe but time consuming due to chopping of veggies.

This recipe was really wonderful but it made SO MUCH!!! I will surely make this again the next time we have a party but I think I'll only make half next time! I used 5 jalepenos and thought it was on the verge of being too spicy for me; 6-10 would've been WAY over the top! Thanks for a great recipe!

This was wonderful. I took this to a weekend getaway with 3 other couples and my husband. Everyone raved about it. We are making it a regular recipe for our group. I did forget to add the celery and used about 3/4 cup of splenda instead of the sugar, but it was amazingly good. Thanks for a keeper.
