Very tasty indeed. I made this early in the morning and let it sit in the fridge all day to allow the flavors to get all friendly. I actually found that it had mellowed and added the juice of a lemon wedge to my serving which really added a lovely boost. This is simple to put together and used things that I almost always have at hand. I'll happily make this again.
