I loved this, but no one else in the house was crazy about it. My only complaint is that it was rather oily. Don't know if it was the oil separating out of the mayonnaise or what. Especially loved the tomato/green onion/cilantro mixture on top (although I had to put it only in the center since DH doesn't eat tomatoes). Made for Zaar Cookbooks Tag.
