CB - very nice and the orange really adds a lovely flavour! I used fresh orange juice instead of orange squash and it was perfect in terms of sweetness. I also threw in cucumber cubes and pomegranate seeds and the latter added a perfect balance to the flavour. Seasoned it with a bit of zahtar as well.
