    I have made this several times for parties and meetings and they have always been a hit, and people constantly ask for the recipe! I have also made a modified version as well and have added a small clove of garlic and some pine nuts, the garlic gives it a little bit of a kick. I will probably roast the garlic if I use it again to take some of the bite out of it! It is a really easy, and delicious recipe!
