Sorry, I just can't recommend this recipe as it stands. I made it EXACTLY to specifications and found that it first of all looked unappetizing -- a sickly mushy brown color all over (thanks to the balsamic). Second of all, it was much too tangy (again, the vinegar). Finally, the garlic really came on strong in the dish. Otherwise, it is a clever mixture of tastes and colors and I thought it was an inspired idea. I tried the mixture without the dressing before I added it and found it to be quite tasty, with several colorful elements. My recommendation is to either: 1) remove the dressing altogether, especially if serving to guests that don't like powerful dishes; or 2) cut the vinegar and garlic by half and/or substitute a quality white wine vinegar. This way, the natural tastes and colors of the dish aren't overwhelmed by the balsamic vinegar.
