I thought this recipe was really good. The cayenne pepper adds a nice little bit of heat. I went back for seconds. Because the first review said it tasted too vinegary I added the red wine vinegar 1/2 Tbs at a time, but I'm pretty sure by the time I was done adding that it was pretty close to the called for amount and I didn't find it overpowering at all.

I reduced the vinegar, as suggested, but it was way too tart for me. It made me make a terrible sour face! I couldn't finish it, but my husband liked it ok.


Very tasty! I reduced the vinegar to 1/3 cup, and with 1/8t cayenne pepper, it was deliciously spicy and tangy without being overpowering.
