“A very light, easy, and refreshing dessert that makes a wonderful presentation (doesn't last long, though!) I have made it several times for Thanksgiving, and for summer picnics. The contrasting flavors and textures make this a very unique and tasty dessert. Prep. time includes refrigeration time.”
