Yummy! I served this to a friend who brought avocado, grapefruit, and watercress salad and it was a delightful pairing. I agree that it could use a bit more flavor; that said, I'm a person who likes a lot of spice. I used a bit more onion than called for and stirred it into the mix prior to making, to infuse the whole dish with more onion flavor. We ate this with a sauvignon blanc.
