    The only changes I made were to use red bell pepper instead of yellow, and I added a little more V8 as the lemon juice and red wine vinegar made it a little too tart for my taste. I really liked this - easy, refreshing and pretty too. Thanks, florida gail!  -  06 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    What a wonderful salad. I love gazpacho & do have a favorite recipe which I combined with this one. Added a few more fresh veggies - radishes, zucchini, cauliflower & sliced black olives. As far as the dressing goes, I used clamato juice and substituted bottled hot sauce and worchestershire sauce for the salsa. I mixed the cabbage and everything else together but the dressing as I didn't want it to get too soggy as I knew there would be leftovers as I made the whole recipe for just me. It is a keeper!!! I have made it twice in the past 2 weeks!! Great for a picnic as there is no mayo or anything that can spoil in the sun/heat!!  -  25 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really liked this slaw but found it a bit acidic. I used Picante-V8 for more zing. Will make this again but cut back on the vinegar.  -  06 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
