Pairs Well With
We loved this flavorful summer recipe from the latest issue of Cooking Light. It can be prepared up to two days in advance--the tomatoes will take on more flavor the longer they marinate. I used grape tomatoes, rather than cherry, and substituted white wine vinegar for the white balsamic. If you prefer a milder heat, you will want to seed the pepper.
