  1. Sonali,

    This does indeed sound like a "kickin" salad recipe! I'm gonna try it for sure. I may have a bit of trouble finding the pickled jalapeno but I will find it eventually! Thanks for posting this.

  2. You can make your own pickled Jalapeno. Just add White vinegar, salt, and sugar to fresh sliced jalapeno. Put it in a air tight container for a day....Your pickled Jalapeno is ready to eat.
