“This has a delicious sweet-tart flavour that is great with grilled or roasted meats, especially pork. Also a salad of spicy greens (rocket, etc.) and rich blue cheeses topped with this vinaigrette is downright exciting! Try it with Pork tenderloin, pounded thin, lightly breaded and browned for a special treat!”
