"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

Personal Notes:
We were served this salad at a wedding and I went right home and wrote down the recipe the bride dictated to me. I am sure the ingredients vary greatly with availability, so feel free to add and subtract!
