This is so good with fresh tomatoes (not recommended with canned) and smoked salmon or other cured salmon (don't use raw). If you don't like salmon, you can omit it. The mix of tomatoes and green onions does it for me, even without the salmon. I like lots of salt and pepper. A local Hawaiian place serves this, although their kahlua pig (pulled pork) is their most popular dish.
