This is a summer favorite. Serve with a refreshing cucumber salad, or as a spread for crackers. Cook time equates to 6 hours chilling.

I made this for the 2006 OZ/NZ Regional Tour and was delighted with both the appearance and the taste of this mousse. A great blend of flavours. I used brown sugar, red wine vinegar (because that's what I had on hand) and I added 2 cloves of minced garlic. Thank you, Daydream, for a wonderful summer recipe!
