Recipe by ButterflyVioletta

This is a super yummy recipe that intrigues your taste buds with a variety of flavors which come together even better the next day. I've tweaked this recipe a bit each time I've made it. Alternatives include swapping orange juice for lime juice or green onions for red.

Loved it! I used it as a side dish and it worked perfectly. I subbed parsley for the cilantro but otherwise made as posted. I'll be using this quite a bit. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
