Wow, luckytrim! You just solved my problem with what to have with the soy-glazed country ribs I have cooking in the crock-pot.

I printed this recipe off and finished making a half-sized batch a few minutes ago. I didn't have any peas but did have everything else. OMIGOSH, it's delicious now. I can't imagine how much better it will be after sitting in the refrigerator for several hours. Yummy, delicious. Thanks.

I'm glad you are enjoying it...............I know; I can't stay out of it for four hours either.
I like it a little better with the wine vinegar, tho'

Nope. It's a chilled veggie salad. I can hardly keep my spoon out of the bowl.

That sounds fantastic! It's also made with things I usually have on hand.

I've never tried this, but I wonder if frozen chopped peppers would work? My garden peppers have failed the last couple of years, due to bad weather, and the red and yellow premium peppers are quite expensive when bought at the supermarket, so I slice and freeze any I don't use up. They're fine for cooking, but I don't know how they'd be in a salad like this.

Connie, I used frozen peppers. Worked just fine.

Just had a thought. Yes, Buck would be rolling his eyes by now.

In any case, I didn't have any frozen peas and thinking about it I feel they may be too "sweet" for this dish. I think drained black beans would be a good substitution. Unfortunately, I don't have any so can't experiment. Oh, well, next time.

You know you have a winning recipe when everyone wants to change it.

Me, I would add some diced kielbasa, and maybe hold the peas and corn.

Thanks for posting, it sounds great.

We had this for our evening meal a little bit ago. GREAT! Every ingredient was fantastic. Tasty. The red pepper flakes set your tongue afire. Yum.

It would be great with some ground/shredded meat and added to tortillas with some cheese for a Mexi take.

Thanks. I'm going to keep this in mind. I might make it for some of the cookouts I go to during the summer.
