Very nice topping for our turkey enchildas! Cilantro is right amount for us. The only thing I did different was I used a tiny amount of pickled jalapeno and omitted the salt. Served with corn salad, steamed veggies, and cantaloupe. Thanks Sharon for sharing.

I went back and forth as to how to rate this one, having enjoyed both as a taco topping and as a side salad. In either case it is crispy, fresh and bright flavored with hot and spicy back note. My one comment is that if you are planning to serve it as a side salad to a 1 additional teaspoon each of the hone and lime juice. So different and so easy. Thanks Sharon.

Enjoyed this as a salad but I think it will be wonderful as a topping too -- or even add tuna or chicken to it for lunch -- possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
