Recipe by EdandTheresa

Easy and sweet.

Top Review by Chef MB

This dish was very good, but a little too sweet for my family. I will make it again, but I'll cut back on the brown sugar, or I'll use regular vinegar (since balsamic is on the sweet side). I might add a little bit of red pepper flakes or some sliced fresh jalapeno, but that's just the way I like things, a little hot. I agree with the other reviewers, great combination of flavors and textures.
