Do I have to leave this in the refrigerator overnight?

You can enjoy this recipe as soon as you make it but in all honesty it is better after it’s been left to chill. It tastes great really cold and the flavors have a chance to meld together once it has sat undisturbed for several house. If you really can’t wait that long, dive in, just know the flavor won’t be quite as developed as it could be!

    I always make a recipe as stated the first time I make it, so haven’t tried this yet because I DO NOT like cilantro. Is there something I could substitute without totally changing the taste of the original recipe? (I hope!)

      I would just leave it out and when it’s finished taste it and see if you feel like there’s something you could add. I’m not sure there’s really anything LIKE cilantro that would need to replace it!
