    Sackville's Note:

    Try something different the next time you have mussels. This is especially attractive if you have some pretty shells to serve the mussel and salad mixture on.

      Perfect! This is authentically Peruvian! And the tips on how to make sure the mussels are good are very helpful! Thank you! If you add some finely minced cilantro to the broth of the mussels and a 1/2 cup of rice you get a great soup too!
