    This is delicious. Both Trader Joe's and Costco sell this salad premade and they are both very good, although Costco's is too spicy for my taste. This one is worth the small effort to make it at home. I added a little red pepper flakes but just a little. I also like a little more lemon

    Amazing!! Like other posters, I usually buy this from Trader Joe's. This is just as good, if better, and easy to make. Thanks for posting!!!

    Great recipe! I added 1 T. apple cider vinegar and another 1/2 cup tomatoes. This stuff is addicting, and a cheaper alternative to the Balela I buy at Trader Joe's.
