"I just made this - it is terrific!!! I added celery, onion and thinly slice radishes. It seems I am always on a diet, and this will be a great snack or side dish - so low calorie!! Will make this many times. Thank you."

"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."
