Gotta love a hot summer day when you don't want to cook but just want to eat something light. This is it! It is a flavorful mix with fresh from the garden veggies & herbs...so refreshing and perfect for a summer afternoon out chillin' by the pool or relaxing in the shade paired up with some delicious mango iced tea!!!
