    Susie in Texas's Note:

    This is a wonderful salsa/dip that we serve at New Year's Eve parties so we can get a head start on "good luck" for the new year. Taste test to determine your own personal degree of hotness. To increase the "heat" add more jalapenos or some minced fresh cilantro.

      A very nice appetizer. None of the ingredients were overpowering but all worked well together for a refreshing experience. It is another classic Southern recipe. The next time I make this, I probably will use the avacado with the whole ingredients instead of using it in the dressing, just for another color and texture. Thanks, Susie for sharing this delightful appetizer/side dish.
