Ok, So this isn't really salsa, but it's what my friend calls it. You should cook it and then refrigerate it so the flavors encorporate. This is served warm, with baguette slices. I typically make this the day before a party and put it in the little crock pot just to keep warm. You can also toss it with pasta for a really yummy dinner.
This comes from one of my cookbooks I've had for awhile. It is a pasta book that covers how to make home made pasta- all kinds. I generally pull this out during the holiday's when I'm stuck on what else can I do with the leftover ham.
Had this at a friends house over the weekend, Monday am was waiting outside her door at the office, hovering for the recipe. This is really simple and really good salad. She tells me it's origin is the Commander Palace restaurant in New Orleans. Never been to this restaurant, but loved New Orleans,!!:)
