This makes a wonderful appetizer for a dinner party. It also makes a yummy, light supper, when served with a bowl of soup.

Full marks for this recipe - try this for lunch on an English toasted muffin. Just excellent. I used anaheim peppers (lots in the garden) and it gave some extra zip to the dish. Also used dark rasins instead of yellow- very good Definately on my list to do again. Thankyou Dee514
