This is a great summery appetizer, but it's great anytime of year, there aren't really any measurements, so the following is guesstimates, really, mix it up to taste, and enjoy, it's great with toasted crostini drizzled with olive oil and parmesan cheese! This is made in one bowl, ande mixed so there is no cooktime!
