My mom makes the most delicious foods. When she asks if she can bring something to dinner this is one of my most often requested dishes. She's balanced the flavors and made them burst in your mouth. This will be a recipe you'll turn to over and over again. She adapted it from a recipe she found in the April/May 2010 Taste of Home magazine. It's best prepared a day in advance of serving as it needs time to rest for the flavors to combine.
