During the summer months, we often pack a meal to go. We are busy running to and from activities or sitting at a ball game so we want something that can go in the cooler without worrying about it spoiling. This is a great light lunch or snack to hold you over until dinner and is a delicious side for a BBQ or picnic. It is very easy to put together and tastes great!

1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro
1/2 pint of grape tomatoes
Juice of 1/2 a lime or 2 tbsp. of lime juice
