      While this recipe is OK if you have a timid tongue, I felt it was just too bland. I added juice of a small lime (about 1 Tbsp.) and that improved it, I thought. Maybe some more onions woulbe be OK, and more cilantro too. However, I do not recommend more cayenne. That amount was spot on. (Any more would make it hot.) I doubt I will make this again, but I'll enjoy the one I made last night at least for another 24 hours. It will be interesting to see how long this stays good, as the vegetables are fairly wilt-proof, making this a good make-ahead salad.

      This is great, lots of good crunch and beautiful to look at. It would be an excellent accompaniment to a Mexican meal, or anything that can stand up to a little spice on the side! I made for Spring Pick a Chef.
