After being bundled up and eating all those great stews this winter, I’m ready for something fresh and light. I made a Lemon mousse that turned out to be the perfect combination of tastes. Not only is it easy, but since you can make it ahead, it’s ideal for when you’re entertaining. Just take it out of the refrigerator and serve it to your family and friends. It will give you a hint of the flavors this season has to offer.

I promise you won’t be disappointed.
