This a good recipe for barbecues, I've made it in the morning and it was fine for the evening meal. Cheers, Doreen Doreen Randal, Wanganui. New Zealand

I really liked this. I did make a couple of small changes, used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, added one clove of minced garlic and only used 1 teaspoon of sugar. I will definitely make this again.

LOVED this! Made it for a potluck BBQ, and it went over like gangbusters. Very summery taste. Thank you!

This recipe was good I added a little more sugar because the vinegar taste was kind of strong and I added raisins and walnuts. Thanks for a great recipe idea.
