Combine Everything Together

  • Once the veggies are completely cooled down, combine them with the mix folding everything together then serve and enjoy. 


If you want to cut through it a bit more, you can always squeeze half of a lemon in it. Fresh basil would taste amazing with this and you could also chop chives or scallions and add them too.
