  • I really liked this, but I think that next time I would add more of the sauce to it. Maybe double the sauce batch. My bf thought it was okay, he would eat it again, but didn't love it. However, knowing his tastes I wondered if he would like it at all. - 12/29/12

  • The avocado is good, but optional for me. I've also made this by adding 1 cup of whole wheat couscous and also a tomato. - 9/5/10

  • This was an okay meal. I liked everything but the cliantro. It is just to strong for me, so I would leave it out next time. Sadly my hubby didn't like it so I doubt I will be making it again. I also don't know if I would add so much lime juice to the dressing it was really tart. - 9/8/09
