“I love the flavor of this simple summer dish. Be careful with the cilantro it is an acquired taste. Wonderful do ahead in the AM and assemble it just before dinner. I like to do this dish with leftover roast beef too. It is hearty enough on it's own but I like to serve it with balsamic tomato slices, sweet onion slices, floral carved radishes and a bit of green salad.”
