"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

This salad is much better if you prepare it a day or two in advance to allow the flavors to blend.

Great for BBQs and picnics and will keep in the refrigerator for several days.
