Apple Balsamic Seared Scallops with Potato Mash

These Apple Balsamic Scallops with Potato Mash are a great choice for a special dinner. Probably not a family meal but still healthy and a hit with guests. I love the flavor the combination of apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar give when combined.
