Lemon Mousse

As soon as the weather starts warming up I start thinking lemon.  This mousse was a perfect, cool lemony treat.  Both Jon and I really enjoyed it and I am just waiting for a good opportunity to make it again for a crowd since it makes quite a lot.  Next time I'll top it with fresh blackberries as garnish, so pretty.
