This recipe is wonderful for summer suppers and picnics. Its light and refreshing. In fact, its good anytime.

I found this recipe in an Elkhart, Indiana, newspaper several years ago and have made it several times. Everyone seems to like it and I have never had left-overs.

You can use light or sugar free ingredients in the frosting to reduce calorie counts if you like.
