“Light and very tasty!! The vinegar mixture has a bit of a tang from the vinegar and it could be toned down a bit if you wish. A great summer time meal but if you grill year round like we do it wouldn't really matter. If you aren't a jalapeno person be willing to try it - this isn't a "hot" dish. This recipe is something I got from my FIL a few years back and I just re-discovered it. Hope you enjoy!”
