"This is a great recipe Served it as a side with sloppy joes. It is tart and very pretty with the diced peppers for color. I used several different colors of mini peppers. It is also low cal since it doesnt have any oil in it. I used cider vinegar in mine and it tasted great. Will definitely make again."
