Pair it with your favorite rice,pasta or sandwich and there you have it!A piquant tasting salad that's beautiful in taste and looks. The dressing in this salad has now become my favorite dressing for all kinds of salads!The hint of ketchup and the sweetness of the honey combined with the tanginess of the vinegar and lime juice makes all the difference and gives it its unique taste.
The inspiration for this recipe came from the website www.spain-recipes.com,while I was searching for tapas recipes, I was planning to make for a gathering.Like I always do, I made some changes(I added some more ingredients and created my own dressing!Yay!) and ended up with an amazing salad recipe!!
