Actually kind of surprised by the rave reviews seen here. It was good, but nothing stellar, and I probably won't make again. I thought the salsa needed more flavor, I think I would add an extra tomato if I DID decide to make it again, and maybe a little something else. It was quick, though, and very healthy. Just a little disappointed after all the great reviews.
