This is a really great recipe that I will be using frequently over the coming summer months. Except for using all red onion's, I followed as per recipe, and we really enjoyed this recipe. A combination of sweet and sour combined into one great dish. I served this as one of the side salads to go with our chicken. And we loved it, the only change I would make would to be to cut down on the cinnamon, as the flavor was strong in this dish and could easily take over the taste, but apart from that, this recipe is truly wonderful! This is a lovely light side to serve on a warm day, and one which I intend to use often.
