    Lately I have begun to use 1/4 cup of olive oil instead of a 1/2 cup, Key Lime Juice instead of regular lime juice and twice the hot sauce.  -  08 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great salad. Very tasty and pretty to look at.  -  19 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Overall, everyone gave this a three. I brought it to a cookout and we all agreed it needed a little something added to give it a little zip. Maybe some vinegar of some sort. But I'll try it again with some changes! Thanks!  -  01 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
