Recipe Notes

This is a great side to make ahead so it have enough time to cool off. We like ours chilled so we keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.

There are lots of options to add to this recipe to tweak the flavor. Try splitting the orange juice with half pineapple juice. Add lemon or orange zest for extra flavor or try a fruity liquor, like Grand Marnier for a nice kick.
