Made as written for the Quest 2014, I foresee this tasty little recipe having several creative uses. We're in avocado heaven here right now & they were a fine add to avocado chunks for a simple, but tasty side-salad w/complimentary flavors. I think they would do equally well adding flavor to pasta & other salads to give them a MOJO ingredient, so to speak. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us Agent Ev.

this was good but next time I will use less lime juice, that amount was slightly overpowering, thanks for sharing Ev!...Kitten

Wonderful flavor! The lime adds so much in creating this flavor! I am serving this with pork tenderloin. Thank you, Evelyn!
