This salad was really high in protein and fiber, low in calories and fat, and delicious. I ate too much (belly ache from the aforementioned fiber) and I really liked the flavors. I didn't add the can of green chiles or jalapeños but we both agreed it needed a little more kick so I'd try that if you're going to make it. This would be a nice dish for a potluck or picnic, a brunch, or to have on hand for lunch. We ate it with some bread for dinner last week when it was really hot out.
