This recipe was on an Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello, by chef Pilar Sanchez. It is a show about "re-do's" of some the unhealthier recipes with some healthier versions of their own.

How very refreshing for a hot summer day! I I have been to his restaurant in St. Helena, what a treat! I did cut the recipe in half and used mango instead of kiwi, for some reason, kiwi and I have never been big friends. Next time, I may try the sour cream, that sounds yummy too. Thanks for posting, Manami.
