"I've made this many time, each time with rave reviews and requests for the recipe. Its one of my favorite summer potluck recipes. Its a bit of work to remove the seeds but well worth the effort."

"I selected this recipe to make for a party this last weekend. I thought it would be good for anyone who leans toward being vegetarian. I got more compliments on these than any of the other foods I made - from meat eaters and nons alike. Looks festive too!"

"I used this recipe as a guide to make my own version. I'm not fond of feta so I used a Mexican Crumbling Cheese, I ran out of red onion so I used a sweet yellow, and I'm not fond of red wine vinegar so I omitted it. I also used the small vine ripened tomatoes you buy in a container. This variation was perfect for me and my taste. Thank you very much for coming up with this recipe!"
