This combination of ingredients is a no-brainer, but I would not have thought to put them together in quite this way. It's delicious and refreshing, and surprisingly filling. Served with a canned oyster chowder (enhanced with some steamed potatoes, peas, and smoked paprika stirred into it) and pumpernickel bread for a good summer dinner.
