Simply elegant, is the best way I can describe this recipe. I used a frozen pea/pearl onion combo which gave it a bit more formal appearance, and I roasted red peppers from my garden (previously frozen) then peeled and diced them. It was absolutely beautiful, and would especially make an attractive Christmas side dish with the red, green and white colors. Thanks, Dorothy -- this one is a real keeper!
