You can use a different flavored vinegar if you prefer. We would recommend red wine vinegar as an alternative to the rice vinegar. -RecipeLion Editors

can you use something different than seasoned rice vinegar????

Oops! The tomatoes go in with the vinegar. Sorry for any confusion. The recipe as it reads now is correct.

When do you add the tomatoes ??
