This recipe came from my Grandmother Johansen, she was a wonderful old-school cook. I learned basically to cook from her on my summer vacations there as a little girl. I still remember how she prepared this summer dish with such care and pride. 'Velbekomme' as we say in Denmark.

My MorMor made this for me when I was little and I just had to make this for my little guys today! Rave reviews from them. The taste is so refreshing and of course if you use real whipping cream it makes it more the yummier! Tak!
