This is an adaption of a recipe we got from the "Goodfood" cookbook by Jane and Michael Stern. The original recipe called for cider vinegar and 2 tbls of minced fresh garlic. WELLLLLLL...we don't just like garlic...we LOVE we "kicked it up another notch" and added the garlic vinegar and more cloves of garlic. You can adjust it to your taste if you don't want as much garlic...but it's better with more!!
