This was GREAT! I made the recipe exactly as quoted, but I did add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I used tuna because I knew my kids would eat it up, and we all did. The 3 tablespoons of lime juice added excellent taste. The only problem I had was that my daughter, wanted to eat all the strawberries, but I still got my share. This defineately is a keeper, and thanks for the recipe.
