The weather is starting to warm up with spring. The birds are out singing, and you can smell fresh cut grass in the air. I love spring and summer foods! They are so light, and they include some of my favorite fruits. Today I was in the mood for some delicious salad.  I was pressed for time, so I chose this recipe. It is easy and quick to make.

1 Tbs of chopped green onions
1/4 cup of cilantro
