Cookbook creator says: If you make this ahead, you might want to have more vinegar ready to add just before eating. The veg seem to take over the tartness. A white basalmic raspberry blush vinegar or rice vinegar with garic would be delicious with this combo.

Very Good 4.0/5

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.
