I make a dish like this for most parties except substitute smaller amount of lime juice for vinegar, use chopped roma tomatoes drained in a colander before mixing, also add more onions and jalapenos to taste, plus a "kicker" of a few drops of Tabasco to taste and garlic salt. I like flavors to blend before placing in a colander type serving dish in a well of crushed ice for a party.
Though, must say I do like your idea of using the drained juice in my salad dressing, so will work on the ice draining in a way to save the juices. Thanks!
