"One of my favorite "go-to's." The entire family LOVES it. Easy and inexpensive to make. A definite winner. I pair it with Pioneer Woman's Simple Sesame Noodles."

"This is one of our favorites - both to eat at home, and to take to potlucks. I've probably made this more than any other recipe from here."

"It had too much vinegar for our taste. I would use half the vinegar if I made it again."
