I made this recipe up while spending a hot summer in Virginia, looking for something cool and refreshing to eat. It works with any dressing or spices you may want to add, so it can appeal to anyone, or be slightly different each time you make it! I have enjoyed it with some added ranch or chili flavors. An easy way to add flavor is to buy pre-seasoned almonds. —Suzie
