The crushed red pepper and balsamic vinegar was a great suggestion. I also prefer seedless raspberry jam instead of strawberry. Thank you for posting!

I saw this on the CL website and gave it a try tonight. It was really good and my DH loved it. Very simple yet a lot of flavor. I replaced the red wine vinegar with balsamic which I believe gave it little more pop. The only thing my DH asked for next time is perhapse a little crushed red pepper. Highly recommended.

I made this one after receiving the magazine and loved it. It's easy and goes well with wine! Did you notice the nutrition Zaar calculated is different than Cooking Light?
