I made this for My daughters HS Graduation Party! It was a big hit! I've had several people ask for the recipe. The only thing I changed was, I didn't have any tarragon vinegar, so I used a little some cider vinegar instead. I will definately be making this again! I may even kick it up a bit and add some jalapeno juice! :)
