    hi tori good looking salad
    jalopenos are good for spicing up every meal. In israel peppers are in most sephardic and israeli dishes in one way or another-not yet in gefilte fish so ill try it and let you know what happens. Skhug is the hot sauce from yemen that i use today made from peppers garlic and coriander,i got addicted to it many years ago whe i put it in my schwarma

    I have a Jewish friend who taught me Israeli salad, he eats it for breakfast with eggs and cheese. I found it dull, needed some spicing up. Adding jalapenos is brilliant and thinking about the avocado/limejuice combo makes my mouth water. This recipe looke like a keeper!
