Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

The perfect recipe: simple, inexpensive, delicious, high protein, vegan. Versatile, too. Add cherry tomatoes, red onion, feta, fine if you don't happen to have bell pepper. I felt great about my 14 year old son coming home after weight lifting and heaping his plate with this, three times in a row! Submitted by:

Have enjoyed this salad very much. Wonder if anyone has tried it with less salt? Wonder if it needs the salt . . . Submitted by:

I made this for my cousin's baby shower and everyone liked it. I think the lime/salt/olive oil/cumin dressing was in perfect proportion to the other ingredients. Easy to make too. Submitted by:
