Recipe by Bergy

This looks attractive and is very refreshing. If you wish to serve it with a very spicy meal and use it as a cooler omit the chile.

This was a very refreshing appetizer, especially on a heavy eating/cooking day!! We didn't change a thing and thouroughly enjoyed the freshness of it. Will use it probably a lot this summer. Thanks Bergy!
