I made this often years ago, when we entertained at home a lot. It sort of got lost in the shuffle; I found the recipe card tucked in one of my old recipe books and decided to resurrect it. It is an excellent starter to a Caribbean themed meal. Prep time includes the hour in fridge to chill. I hope you try it; I know you will like it.
