Made this recipe with only half of an onion, and everyone still said it was too much!  Will try just 1/4 onion next time and double the seasonings. 

I've made this a few times with elementary cooking classes. The kids seem to love it most when I've made the following changes:
reduced or excluded the onion, switched from apple cider vinegar to lime juice and increased the amount to 1/4 cup for whole recipe. This big increase in lime juice happened by accident but resulted in the largest approval of the recipe. :)
