    very nice balance of flavors. just a hint of spicy and very different from any other recipe. I got a ton of compliments on this when I brought it to work to share with friends.

    I made this for a summer block party and received tons of compliments on it. It was refreshing and a little spicy at the same time. Definitely a keeper!
