This is very good! I halved the recipe and used red bell pepper, red onion, and leftovers from one of those chickens you get already roasted from the supermarket. The only change I made was to cut back the sugar just a little bit, and I'm glad I did as it was just about the right sweetness for my taste. I also just realized that I forgot the garlic salt - whoops! I do think the serving sizes are way off though - I got about 3-4 servings from a half recipe. I'm looking forward to trying this again with pork or beef. Thanks for posting!
