    Made this mostly as directed – subbed parsley for some of the mint and lemon for the lime, and it tasted phenomenal! Easy to make and loved by everyone in our home. I will make this again as written with the lime and full cup of mint. Thank you for sharing this one with us!

    Can you freeze this?

    • Yes! It will generally last well in the freezer so we make bigger batches sometimes. It will lose the bright green color but the flavor will remain. Also it is a great idea to add the ice cubes into soups, stir frys or steamed veggies as quick and easy way to add flavor.
