    Loved this dish. It was so easy and fresh and my meat preferring husband thoroughly enjoyed it and cleaned out all the leftovers!  -  12 Oct 2012


    Altered ingredient amounts. This dish was a hit at my office potluck! As the other cooks suggested, I added onions. I also doubled the garlic amount and added a small pinch of seasoned salt to bring out the flavours. I highly recommend this recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Light and refreshing but not at all hearty, great as a side dish  -  20 Jan 2014
