Makes a lot!! Tasty. Well received by dinner guests. I'll surely see how it ages because I have 3/4 quart left. I would halve this recipe unless making it for a group. Thanks for posting.

I used red onion and halved the recipe. I served over spinach salad and very much enjoyed it. I can't wait to try it tomorrow, after it's had a chance to sit awhile! Thanks!
