This can be enjoyed with your favorite meat or simply alone. You can have this along with a steak, grilled chicken breast, baked chicken, baked fish, boiled shrimp, baked pork chops, lamb chops, roast beef, turkey, and the list just goes on. Want to take it up a notch? Boil, chill and dice up some shrimp (not included in nutrition facts). With this recipe and any other recipe, moderation is key. Too much of anything can be bad.

Notes: You may use dry cilantro but I prefer fresh. There is a big difference in the taste. You can use bottled lemon juice or squeeze a lemon.
