Summer Vegetable Chopped Salad with Jalapeno Viniagrette + Weekend Sales

If you are looking for a great salad recipe for the holiday weekend, look no further! 
I have a tendency to hoard old cooking magazines.  Any other magazines I toss in the recycling bin but I have a hard time parting with my old cooking ones.  I found this recipe in an old issue of Food and Wine as I was going through them to toss out.  This salad blew my mind.  The jalapeno dressing is so bright and flavorful.  It really makes this salad pop.  The original recipe calls for nectarines too but I could not find any and honestly it was great as is.  The original recipe also calls for fresh lima beans but I used frozen and cooked them myself. 
This salad will be made all Summer long.

I made this salad the other day and I was a little nervous because my husband has told me previously that he hates lima beans. Well, I decided to make it anyways and just used baby lima beans instead in hopes that it would throw him off a bit! :) Can I just say the man loved it! He liked it so much that he actually took it to work for lunch the next day! Thank you for posting this!!
