There is nothing like the desert in the spring time. With a minimum amount of water the desert springs to life with varied and beautifully vivid colors. This salad celebrates the freshness of spring with the chili peppers that are native to this part of the country along with a lively dressing that is made with a touch of chili powder. The recipe comes from the spring 2006 Sabrosa dining guide.
