This is a recipe that I stumbled upon years ago and I tweaked it to my liking. It's easy to substitute things that you don't like. It is also better the longer it sits.

This salad is one that would be a great addition to many meals. I loved the colorful presentation and plain had my socks knocked off by the flavor!
