  • dash cayenne
  • 2 Tablespoon of water

How to make it:
  1. Put salad ingredients in bowl.
  2. For salad dressing, put all the ingredients in a blender and puree.
  3. Pour dressing over salad, toss to coat. (Use only as much dressing as you feel necessary- rest can stay in fridge for a week or two)
  4. Personal opinion is the salad is great with pulled poultry or stir-fried steak. Therefore it's great for taking to potlucks and bbq's.
