    I love this salad and have made it several times. But I went to make it again and looked it up and realized the recipe doesn’t include one of the ingredients you have pictured: the leafy green. I’m guessing it’s cilantro (though I guess it could be parsley?), but again, I’ve never included it before since I always went by the text recipe, which doesn’t list it. Could you update the recipe to include what it is and how much?
