Honored to be the first to review this! I too saw this on Food Network and couldn't wait to try. It looked so yummy! Well, it taste even better. We had it for dinner in lettuce wraps and I had it for lunch the next day on top of Romaine lettuce. I did add some low cal Parm. Vinegarette dressing to the salad and also added black pepper. Who would have thought that strawberries and cilantro and onions would go so good together, but they do! This is very healthy and full of great flavor. Highly recommend. Will make again.
