Unique! Made as a last minute side for DH to pack in his lunch giving it a quick taste as he whisked it out the door and was not overly impressed. This recipe was made as written and does state can be served immediately or chilled and then served, but after my quick immediate taste think it would benefit from the optional chill time. Thanks for the post.
