      PAC Fall 2009: This is a very good recipe. I would have given it five stars except I was confused by the instructions. It says to steam the mussels but it doesn't say in what, so I did what I usually do for mussels, which is make all of the ingredients into a broth, bring it to a boil and then steam the mussels in the broth. The balsamic vinegar/cilantro combination is very interesting and fresh tasting. I substituted onion and garlic for the bell pepper because I'm not a fan of peppers. After the mussels were cooked, I spooned the broth over and added some additional fresh cilantro on top. Yum!
