This is SO good! Not too spicy, could use more tang, like another poster said maybe some lime juice. Could be served over brown rice, couscous, quinoa

Great hot or cold
Pure and Utter Deliciousness!

I have made this salad numerous times and it is out of this world! The perfect balance of zest and spice. The poblano pepper is a must for those who like a little heat. I will make this again and again. Total YUM!

Fast, easy, delicious

Took this to an outdoor concert/picnic and it was a hit. Will definitely make again. Only deviation i made was to substitute parsley for cilantro (never got that gene). May add a chili from the adobo sauce next time. But that's a personal preference. Great dish

Nutritious, tasty, comes together in a flash
Good RT or cold

Made this as described except that I used the juice of 1 lime made up to volume with cider vinegar. The chipotle in adobo and cumin renders most of the flavor but it still seems to need something - can't think what.

Comes together easily

I really liked this recipe and will make it again. Next time though, I will probably add a little lime juice to it

Easy, quick, and tasty
