Personal Notes:
I eat this at least once a week and play with the ingredients all the time. I don't like jalapenos so don't add those but I have added Kalamata olives and subbed out the zucchini with cucumber. I have also made cubed and shredded chicken and added that in at the end to give it a protein. This is quick, very tasty, and easy to make.
