This quick and colorful dish is perfect for family breakfasts. By preparing it ahead of time, I can enjoy many other activities such as cross-stitching, painting, reading and, most importantly, spending time with my three boys!

"Such a simple recipe to throw together. I love it b/c I can make it ahead and let it chill overnight. It's liked by so many and especially refreshing for those hot summer get togethers. A nice change of pace from the typical "sweets" at potlucks. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!"
