    Easy enough to do. I used a coarse salt for taste and visual appeal.

    Nice little recipe! Quick and easy, yet very tasty!! I used coconut sugar, which is lower glycemic and has a bit of a brown sugar taste. I also used gourmet salt to finish it. Love it! Nice that you can adjust the sugar and salt to taste as well.
