This dish is light and full of fun flavors! I added some roasted chicken breast for a little protein, but good quality tuna would be wonderful, too. I also added some cherry tomatoes, sliced spring onions, about a tablespoon of capers and used a mix of black and green olives. The chili pepper flakes and lemon juice really give a nice kick. Overall a winner! Thanks!
