    My husband and I loved this. It is a great meal on a hot summer day! I'm thinking about using wheat angel hair pasta next time.

    I fixed this tonite & found it to be AMAZING!!!I did not have lime juice, only lemon juice & not quite enough of that! Used orange juice to make up the difference. Followed everything else, except only used half the yellow pepper & half the red pepper, because I am not a fan of bell peppers. I did not use the fresh parsley, as it does not add any flavor and I did not have any.Everything else was pretty much on task. It was absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again! HUGE HIT for my husband & I!

    Way too much lime. Lots of runny dressing at bottom of bowl. My family hated it.
