This sounds yummy. If you did add additional herbs or spices, what would you suggest?
Donna John
Thyme and lemon are a classic combination. But tarragon, basil, oregano or rosemary would work too. Maybe a combination? Why not? I'm making a batch of this right now! :-) Robin Doyle Oh, what about Greek seasoning or Mediterranean seasoning? Yum.

I thought about thyme or rosemary, but I like the Mediterranean idea better!!
