Serving Suggestion
  1. A traditional side to Creole dishes, this salad is often spiced up with a dash of hot sauce. Turn it into a main course by adding cooked chicken, sausage, crab meat, or jumbo shrimp just before serving, stuffed into fresh tomatoes or spooned over ripe avocado halves. This dish reheats well; make it ahead of time and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
