Kristie's tips

Use grape tomatoes rather than chopped tomatoes in this recipe so that the dish stays fresher longer and so that those who don’t enjoy tomatoes can easily avoid them.

You can also wait to add the lettuce until just before serving so that it stays crisp.

If you want to lower the carb count, you can skip the tomatoes altogether, but don’t skip the cucumber, peppers, or red onions. Along with the sauce, those ingredients give the bowl just the right punch of flavor and texture.
