Now I love to serve this as a light appetizer or as a starter salad. This is amazing served with fresh mango, red pepper and served over fresh arugula. Served with a baquette toasted with melted gooey havarti cheese. Or you can really use your favorite. Use what you have at hand. This is just a nice change from the every day lettuce, tomato, onion, etc ... SALAD. Besides what a impact for a dinner party or a nice dinner for a friend or your significant other.
