Author Notes

I love to fix this quick dish in hot weather and serve with tacos or burritos or even tuna salad on the side. Fresh limes and cilantro make all the difference, so please don't substitute dried cilantro or bottle lemon juice because it changes the flavor immensely--and not in a good way! It's good chilled on a warm day, or on a cool afternoon leave it at room temperature. This also makes an excellent taco with combine with a fried egg and a little cheese (melted). It will brighten up your table, especially when served in a red bowl--the colors really POP! It stays fresh for up to a week when covered in the fridge. Low-fat, low-cal, vegan and healthy, it's hard to beat for quick, easy and tasty too! —BeijingRose
