I love to make this recipe. Sometimes I eat it all by itself, but it's excellent with tortilla chips, too! You'll enjoy it either way! —Maria Riviotta-Simmons, San Tan Valley, Arizona

    I love this combo of flavors! I've actually been eating it as a low-carb salad for lunch.

    Excellent! I made this for a baby shower and served with tortilla chips, although I noticed many serving up as a salad to eat alone.

    Amazing! So fresh. I add a chopped fresh mango, it adds a new level of taste to the recipe.

    This is amazingly good, and even better on a really hot day. The only thing I did different was to add the whole peeled and chopped cucumber and add 2 jalapenos and the juice of 2 limes.
