Add some cheese! Mix in some mozzarella cheese balls, crumbled goat cheese, or crumbled feta for some bites or creamy goodness.

Add more veggies! Sliced zucchini, squash, or eggplant would work well here, as would diced bell peppers, rinsed chickpeas, or hulled sweet corn.

Make it spicy with some diced, seeded jalapeño or a pinch of dried cayenne pepper.

Add some fruit! Diced mango or pineapple would be great here.

Swap the herbs! Fresh dill, basil, oregano, or rosemary would all be delicious here. In the summer I add whatever herbs I have in the garden. The more herbs the better!

Switch out the lemon juice for lime juice or use a combination of the two!
