I incorperated a couple recipes for this dish to make the one that had the ingredients I wanted. I really enjoy this one.

I made a couple of changes, to use what I had. I added a tiny bit of salsa verde when measuring the salsa, because I was desperate to use it up. I had to omit the tomatoes because I didn't have any. I also sliced rather than chopped the olives (the ones I had were whole). This turned out well and everyone liked it. I thought the lettuce was an odd addition before baking, but I used it and it turned out fine. I do agree with MTpockets that it looks like a huge mess on the plate, because there isn't really anything to hold it together. I am not picky about presentation, though.
