  1. Really its a 5 plus - I dont usually say that at all, but Pat it was just such a wonderful combination of flavours. I dont believe in changing any recipe if I want to rate it. I always feel that at least for the first time, I do it "your way" other wise I would not have chosen it. its easy to prepare and the spicy flavour is just tingling in your mouth, its already become a firm favourite according to my DH, so thanks so much for posting. we served this along with a couple of other salads at a family Barbecue.
  2. Sorry Pat, but this one just didn't zing for us. I felt it was lacking in something like a dressing or something juicy to meld the ingredients together. Very healthy though as it is. I used small purple skinned potatoes as that was all I had on hand. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap March 2012


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
