I added a few splashes of fresh lime juice at the end and served it with some delicious monterey jack polenta. Absolutely outstanding!

I especially loved the salsa. Such an easy and healthy dish I think I'll be making this one again! I ate the leftovers cold on a salad of tossed greens with a squeeze of lemon the next day and it was great that way, too!
