We served this for dinner between two of us. We had it with garlic bread and some olives for saltiness. Yummy! Will make again
Flavorful, not too tangy and not too sweet. Served it with honey mustard dressing on the side (from Salad Greens With Honey-Mustard Dressing).
Very tasty recipe. We really enjoyed this. Easy to put together and excellent served with salad leaves. Thanks for posting.
