This is a great dish that is easy to make and can be served at room temperature. It works well for a picnic side dish. Mint is growing rampant this time of year and is delicious with the lemon. Make sure to cut your green onions with scissors to retain their juices. If you slice green onions with a knife, they squish.
Have a Happy Memorial Day and keep the thoughts of all the Serviceman who have fought for our freedom.
Be well, Tamara
