"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."
