Apple cider wine vinegar - I prefer the taste of apple cider vinegar over any of the other vinegar.
Sugar - to make these zero points leave out the sugar, but the sugar gets dissolved when boiling the vinegar so they end up being zero points.
Use your favorite sweetener in place of sugar.

myWW: 0 points (all 3 plans)
Yes, there is sugar in this recipe but it gets dissolved in the vinegar and it isn't much and that is why I don't count it. I only use a couple of them on top of some recipe and not the whole recipe.
