“We like ours a little chunkier and not as pureed as most - so bear that in mind as you prepare this summer treat!!! An easy dish to whip up for any size group - just increase ingredients proportionately. I grew up eating this - my Dad made it ALL the time for many occassions!! Thanks, Dad!!! ****Cook time is CHILL time. ;) On a side note - a little splash of white wine added to this doesn't hurt if you are of a mind to do so - we generally do!”
