Notes

Raisins – Not a fan of raisins? You could substitute for grapes instead.
Red onion – Sometimes red onions can be a bit pungent. If this is the case try soaking them in cold water after you cut them for ten minutes and then drain. Or you can swap them for yellow onion if you prefer those.
Additional mix-ins – Feel free to get creative with your mix-ins. This is just a baseline suggestion. You can always switch it up… I often do! Carrots and avocado would be great additions to this recipe.
