This was an excellent recipe. I made it for our Xmas party and used olive oil since our minister had bypass surgery. If using olive oil, just refrigerate about an hour before you leave. I opened the fridge and shook it a bit so it wouldn't set/become more jello like in the fridge. Then I added it, tossed it and took to the party. It's great because you don't have to reheat it-it tastes wonderful at room temperature.
