This looks WONDERFUL! I have a friend that has Hashimotos disease and is not eating nightshade family foods, which are very common to Turkish food. Too bad I found this recipe right when it started getting cold outside! LOL! I'm going to save the recipe for a refreshing summer treat. I LOVE your site! Thank you! :)
