I used olive oil instead of sunflower oil and a mixture of red wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar, it still came out fine. It is very sweet but works great when combined with other flavours. It is a very easy recipe that you don't need to spend much time attending to while it is cooking. I have used some to make little tarts of puff pastry, onion, crumbled feta and pinenuts - recieved great compliments.

Amazing. Try it on a green salad too. Very pretty. Made great Christmas presents. Yummy on leftover turkey sandwiches.

This is gorgeous! I thought at first when I just tasted it after making, that it was going to be far too sweet. But when you eat it with something, it's much more mellow. The only thing I did different was to use olive oil as that was all I had, and I couldn't get anything called grenadine cordial (even in Sainsburys, whose magazine the recipe came from) but I found Pomegranate syrup, which seemed to work.
