“This is a recipe that my mom used to prepare when I was growing up. Our whole family loved it,” writes Bonnie Schiltz of Oakley, Kansas. “Now I enjoy preparing this same dish for my husband and our four children. They seem to enjoy it as much as I did when I was a kid.”

- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
