I saw this recipe awhile ago over on Reading, 'Riting, and Recipes and, after adapting it slightly, have made it several times since. You can make it and eat immediately, or chill it for awhile; I would just recommend bringing it to room temperature before eating. Using the freshest ingredients helps to bring out the wonderful flavors of lime, garlic, and cilantro. Yum!
