    This recipe is nearly identical to my mothers recipe. We used baby corn on the cob, and insead of cider vinegar we used garlic red wine vinegar. Baby pearl onion rings are nice too! This bottom of the bowl extras make a great topper for a mixed green salad the next day! [email protected]!

    I have made this recipe several times and almost everyone that tastes it asks for the recipe.I prefer to use Balsamic Vinegar and add a few pinches of crushed red pepper.This recipe is becoming a tradition for family get-togheter in our family.

    I made this recipe for a picnic, and it really was a hit. I had a few people ask me for the recipe they said it was so tastey and they wanted to make it themselves.
