"This recipe was easy and tasty! I didn't have tarragon vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar instead. My husband enjoyed his portion served over lettuce and I enjoyed mine with lettuce wrapped in a tortilla. The grapes mixed with the other flavors is quite yummy. I will definitely make this recipe again."
