This is a recipe that is ridiculously simple to make, with very few ingredients, but the end result is gorgeous and delicious! It's a great thing to serve in the winter when you need something colorful and vibrant to perk up your taste buds, but great any time of year because it's so colorful and unusual.
The recipe (adapted only very slightly) is from food writers Marian Burros and Lois Levine's classic book, "Elegant but Easy", and they attribute it to a grocery carryout shop in NYC, Agata and Valentina.
This is best served at room temperature which makes it wonderful for picnics, potlucks; anything really.
Have a wonderful, peaceful Memorial Day as we remember those who sacrifice so much for all of us.
