“This is great to serve anytime! Makes a great lunch and a fine dinner if you toss a little wine and a loaf of crusty bread in the deal! You can use whatever vinegar you like, and can add, after tasting, more. Nakano makes several seasoned vinegars that are scrumptious! Smoked paprika is one of the best seasonings I've ever used; you can't believe how fragrant it is nd the taste is amazing. However, having said that, it is very pricey. I cannot advise you excpept to tell you that without it, the recipe won't taste the same.”
