"This is a great recipe! The sauce is light and very tasty. I used fresh herbs from my garden, otherwise, I followed the directions exactly. This is on my "make often" list!"

"This was good, but the 1 tbsp. of vinegar was sort of overpowering, so I added some sugar to cut the tartness. I also wanted to reduce the fat so I only added a small amount of oil, which of course probably made it too tart with the tbsp. of vinegar. I will make again but cut the vinegar. It actually tasted great the next day. I also added some red pepper flakes. I also rated this at 4 stars but it would not take it."
