    Mmmmm that looks so summery and fresh. I could use something like that about now, especially after the grease filled week I just had.

    1. Yeah…you could probably use something from your garden!

  3. This looks so fresh and summery! I’m bookmarking this one to try!

    1. Let me know how it goes!

    I have been looking for a great dish to bring to my dog rescue club’s BBQ. This looks so good and different. I’m sure I will be the only one there with it. Thank you.

    1. I think that is a good idea, Kelly! I’m sure you’d be the only one there with it and it doesn’t have to be hot.

  6. Jenny Lenczycki says:

    I’m so jealous if your kids eat this! I would personally love it, but no chance my hubs or Cole would eat it 🙁

    1. Yes, my kids are huge veggie fans – even more so than me. They gobbled this one one! Maybe if you add a tomato sauces and cut up the veggies really small, they might eat it then. Worth a shot!
