“This recipe is based on one my neighbor gave me years ago. It was tucked away in a filing box and when I finally used it, I wished I had tried it sooner!” Barbara Langan - Croton-on-Hudson, New York

"This was a very easy recipe to make and had a refreshing light orange taste to it. I didn't have an orange on hand, so I didn't add the zest. Also, I had to use a regular onion since I didn't have any green onions. Will definitely make it again!"
