"This combination sounds kind of strange, but believe me, it is excellent! My husband went crazy over this, he ate the whole thing by himself. We love spicy food and this really hits the spot when we want a cold salad! Recipe compliments of Gourmet."

"Delicious! I LOVED this salad!! Beautiful to look at as well as great tasting. My rice vinegar was not sweet so I added honey, but otherwise followed the recipe. This reminded me a bit of fruit salsa. I could have eaten the entire salad myself but alas, had to share with Dh. I made 1/2 the recipe shown so I had less cutting to do, but the 45 minutes prep time seems a bit long. I think you can do it in less time. The recipe doesn't state it, but I peeled the pears. Thank you, Grace Lynn! "
"What a yummy dish...the only change I made was using red pepper flakes because I couldn't locate any fresh red chili peppers...I did pick up some jalapeno peppers...but with all the green I felt it needed a touch of red...both hubby and I enjoyed the crisp fresh taste of this dish along with the touch of spice...thanks for posting it...=)"
"I loved this. Very refreshing, and light. A unique summer salad. I used sweet pepper chili sauce instead of the fresh hot chili peppers, and it was wonderful. For a little extra color I added some red grapes, they added great flavor too. The dish is missing something crunchy though- maybe the next time I will top it off with some roasted nuts, right before serving. "
"We loved this. Very refreshing with the lime juice. I did not have any Rice vinegar, but used white vinegar and ended up adding a bit of mayonnaise and sugar to get a flavor that I liked. "
