Recipe by Annacia

Not only is this lightly spiced salad wholesome and utterly delicious on its own, but it also lends itself to many other serving ideas. Wrap it up in lettuce leaves or tortillas, stuff it into lettuce-lined pita bread, hollowed out tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, or mound on spears of endive. Try leftovers for lunch.
