This was nice. I'm going to try it on some bread tomorrow, that seems delish to me. The longer you leave it, the better the flavors. I followed the recipe except for the vinegar, i used balsamico. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers, ZWT4

I cut back on the amount of red pepper, but otherwise included the ingredients listed & had a very nice side dish! I particularly enjoyed it on thick slices of multigrain bread! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Eastern Europe during the Zaar World Tour 4]
