This recipe is slightly sweet and tangy but the flavors pair well with each other. I always make this when I just don’t feel like cooking a huge meal and it is a hit every time. I never have leftovers when I make this recipe. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking, You can also add in a bit of lemon juice to pep it up even more. I do this sometimes as well. Sometimes I also add black olives to switch it up a bit. It all depends on what you have on hand and your preferences. Any way you make it, It is super delicious.
