Sometimes the simple flavors are the best! An easy, inexpensive side dish that makes me think of summer even in the winter. You can play around with the ingredients to make it your own.

Hi there! This was one of my PAC recipes. I whipped this up tonight, and I'm going to take it to work tomorrow as part of my lunch. This was VERY and so full of flavor! I'll make this again. Thank you so much!
