I won the Chicago semi-finals of the Simply Manischewitz recipe contest with this recipe. Sounds a little strange, but it really is good.

YUMMMM! This one is a winner in our book too. I was a little unsure cherries and balsamic would mix.  I was pleasantly surprised. The flavors complemented one another wonderfully. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
