Test Kitchen Notes

A great addition to tacos, grilled meat or spooned onto tortilla chips—or even just a spoon! You really can't go wrong with all of these summery ingredients. Best after chilling for 30 or more minutes, so don't skip that step.

I found the 3 tablespoons of cilantro slightly overpowering, so you might reduce the amount if you are sensitive to it. —Emily Okey
