During the Spring and Summer months, we love light and refreshing recipes. Not only is this recipe light and refreshing, but it can also be made ahead of time. Meaning you have more time to enjoy the sunshine and can spend less time worrying about preparing dinner for the night.  

We added Crunchies Freeze-Dried Blueberries for an extra fruity flavor and satisfying crunchy texture.
