Review by Bergy

Was this yummy! Great way to make an omelet. In addition to the listed ingredients, I added a dash of freshly ground black pepper. I also minced the "relish" ingredients so as not to have too large a chunk when chewing. I can also see how you could saute the vegie mix as well. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will try that. Thx dieniab for sharing. Update: Made this again and quickly sauteed the relish ingredients and a very slight saute of the spinach. Like it both ways (raw and sauteed), but found the the saute adds more of a flavor element. Because the spinach was sauteed and it decreased in volume, I will add more of it next time. Was definately YUM again!
