"Delicious recipe. My family thoroughly enjoyed this with some grilled cajun shrimp, baked chicken, and fresh vegetables. I added some lemon juice (half a small lemon), some mayonaise (3/4 of tbl spoon), and fresh cracked black pepper (1/4 t spoon), and some coconut oil (to taste, and emulsified with a little bit of mixture to ensure no separation). Overall, great basic recipe - must try."
