We have a wine shop and I tried this for our Valentine's tasting and everyone loved it!!! I added more red pepper and used cilantro instead of parsley. I also was maybe a little heavy on the garlic and onion because I love them but just a little extra is always good : ) I put each on a skewer with a chunk of avocado.
