Very light, totally delicious. I found this recipe via the iPad menu app, and made all the recommended sides, too (Spinach with Garlic Dressing, Ciabatta with Olive Oil Dip). The meal was a hit, and was fairly simple to prepare. The flavors are bright, fresh and vibrant - especially at this time of year (late June).
