We really enjoyed this recipe. I only had red wine vinegar on hand so I used that. When I tried it right after making it, I thought it may have called for too much vinegar, but after sitting in the fridge all day, it was perfect. This is an easy dish to put together and has lots of flavour. Thanks for the recipe.
