I didn't want to cook it in a complicated way and so I made it into a salad that I once tasted at Monte's in BSC. It's simple and nice and perfect for entertaining. The version I had was served with Thousand Island sauce, but, I didn't have that at home, so I made my own. If you have tomato paste, it's even better!
