“From our CSA box delivery but original recipe source unknown. I forgot to buy a red bell pepper for this recipe and substituted a little bit of red onion. Dark balsamic vinegar or soy sauce can replace the worcestershire sauce if desired. I considered adding caraway seeds to the salad and I'll try that new time.”
