says: "The sweet sour taste of raspberry
vinegar and honey brings a very refreshing taste
to this dish. This recipe was designed to be a
meal for one, or as a side dish for two or three
but it can be easily expanded to meet the needs
of any size group. Other vegetables could be used
as well. Cooking is a Creative Sport!"
