I've made this several times now, it's a great 'company' dessert, which means, for me, at least, it cam be made in the morning and forgotten about until serving time. I've used lemon juice and also lime juice for a whole new dimension...delicious. It's a quite light mousse, especially nice after a rich, heavy main course.
this was wonderful--light and refreshing--a perfect summertime dessert! Followed the recipe as written, and wouldn't change a thing!! thanks for posting!! Teresa
