This is a great quick and easy main dish salad. Its especially good for a summer evening supper on a hot day.

I like to serve this to friends with cold iced tea and a fresh fruit dessert. Everyone seems to like it and you can adjust the spices to be as mild or hot as you like.

I found this recipe in a local church cookbook from about 5 years ago and have made it many times since then.
