Is it perfect to enjoy in the hot summer months when your garden is bursting with vegetables and it is too hot to cook.

I am always concerned about our health and how we eat. When I find recipes like this, I always make sure we try them. This one went over really well with the whole family. Its low calorie content allows me to add a piece of chicken or fish to it without blowing the calorie budget. I used 4 tbsp. of olive oil instead of 2, but other than that I made no alterations.
