My fiance was looking for something to add variety to his weekly lunch menu. I make this for him at least once a week because he's always asking for it. Pretty simple to just whip up, worth a try. You can easily substitute the herbs with dried versions and use the lemon juice found in the grocery for easy prepare shortcuts.
