      We enjoyed this, though we found it to be a very mild sweet and sour sauce. I used apple cider vinegar and splenda, all green peppers, and yellow onions. My shrimp was pre-cooked so it ended up a little chewy but that was operator error. I liked the sauce on lots of veggies over brown rice for a very easy weeknight meal.

      DH and I loved this dish! It is a notch above the normal sweet and sour recipe. I figured it to have 5 WW points. Added a touch of red peppers during step 5. I also doubled the sauce mixture to serve over rice. Overall a quick, easy and delicous dish that will be made again. Thanks TXOLDHAM for posting this recipe.
