My boyfriend said that this recipe is "the perfect blend between sweet and spicy." Also, it is lovely on the bed of fresh lettuce leaves.


I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this is a delicious dish! Somehow all those ingredients worked. As is, I give it 4 stars. With the following adjustments we agreed that it would be a 5... added a little pineapple juice to the dressing, too thick to "drizzle" otherwise. Sprinkled some cajun snack mix over the top to add some crunch as it is a very wet salad. My dad also thought adding some sunflower seeds might be a good addition, although we did not try it. Definitely recommend this, it was a hit!


This was pretty tasty! I halved the recipe and even then used only an 11 oz. bag of lettuce; I'm glad I didn't use more lettuce because it would have been sort of dry. I was leery of the ingredients, but the taste was good. Made it for Mardi Gras dinner, and I'll probably make it again in the future.
