      G-Ma, does your profile say you are from Sequin? As in Sequin, Texas? I'm asking, cos I used to live in Austin for a long, long time.

      Sounds really yummy. You could probably make it even healthier by replacing the mayo with non-fat yogurt and a bit more lemon juice.

      Either way, it sounds great.
