Sep 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I served this at a dinner party last week. Everyone agreed it was one of the best things they ever ate. It is a pricey dish and it is a bit labor intensive.

This recipe was soo yummy yet so elegant. I made it for our St. Patrick's Day get together and it was a huge hit. I will be making it again and again every chance I get. The flavors were gorgeous. I couldn't find the champagne vinegar so I used white wine vinegar. I had to use a bit more than the recipe called for as it didn't have enough ac...
