Traded out some of the veggies for what was in the fridge, and threw in capers and green olives...awesome!

I liked the taste above all, the texture, and the health value. I modified it a little bit, but nothing that changed the taste or health benefit. I liked it so much, that I shared it with a coworker, who also loved it.
