Used to serve this at the restaurant and to Baylor College of medicine by special request. Serves 6-8. You can add more of a certain ingredient if you prefer. Wonderful on a hot summer day. I came up with this recipe years ago when looking for a light but tasty summer dish. Salt gives it a bitter taste. ENJOY!!
