This is a great tasting recipe -
my sister who claims not to be a great cook (I beg to differ) she is the middle child - with a Charlie Brown complex- and she says I'm just like "Lucy" she is probably right- but all in all she is a great cook and makes this recipe for all our family get-togethers. It is very creamy and has just the right amount of mint to set it apart from other dessert/salad recipes. Try it - see if you agree!
