We are having this for dinner tonight...it is chilling now, but I did have to take a little taste...just to make sure it is ok!! It is delicious and it hasn't even been chilled yet!! This would be a great dish to serve on a hot summer night or to take to a covered dish dinner! I used dried cranberries...just because I had them!
