LOVED IT. I made this last night for a Teacher appreciation luncheon at my daughter's school. It came out wonderful. I used apple cider vinegar and it was really tangy and sweet. I also used about 15 slces of bacon because my philosophy is the more pork the better. This is a great recipe it can be served hot or cold. I will definately make this again. Thanks a million!
