For the holiday I was asked to bring a vegetarian dish.  Wanting something that would go with all the meats and cheeses and heavy salads that you typically find at backyard Texas BBQ’s I decided to pop out this recipe from the far reaches of my recipes.  It has a bit of a kick, but when served cold it is a very refreshing taste.

You don’t need a BBQ to make this – use it for a cool meal to have in the fridge for easy meals.  Try it, leave for your family, friends or spouses; or enjoy it for yourself if you’re having a busy week.  Makes for eating healthier through a busy week that much easier!
