Almost 4 1/2 stars. It looked nice, tasted fine but wasn't anything special. I used scallion onions, flat leaf parsley which I added most into the omelette though the recipe was unclear about that I think that was the idea, then I garnished it with the rest. I used cherry tomatoes, and left out the green pepper per preference. For the salt I used sea salt. I liked how the eggs were blended so the omelette came out half moon shape with ease. I will use that technique again but I don't think I will make this particular omelette.

Lovely falavour! I did add some pepper to give it a little kick. It tasted wonderful but It didn't look wonderful, sorry, had a time trying to turn it over and kinda gave up, there was just too much "goodies" in it. I served it with salsa and did enjoy it very much.
