Yum. This was great. Left out most of sugar. Loved there was no oil in the dressing. 


I can only give this 3 stars due to the alterations I made, but the base recipe is good.  I used maybe a tablespoon of sugar (I'm diabetic and do not eat much sweet food unless it's fruit), added homegrown cherry tomatoes, garlic, green chiles (in addition to the jalapenos), a little oregano and cumin, some lime juice and a bunch cilantro.  Thanks!


this was SO good. i used only a couple of tablespoons of sugar and it was plenty sweet. i also added some lime juice and cilantro from my garden


This dip was a hit at my party!  I didn't have any jalapenos, so I left those out and I only put half the sugar and it was plenty sweet!  Delicious!  And very pretty with all the colors.
