MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2011

Made this for the first time for a family gathering and everyone LOVED it. I make it a bunch now for potlucks and gatherings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2011

I've made this recipe several times for potlucks and it always gets rave reviews! The simple olive oil dressing brings out the variety of flavors without being overpowering. The crostini are time consuming but always turn out great.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2011

This is sooo good, but if you want to change it up, serve this warmed. Both ways are great! A small serving in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, stirring once. Deliteful!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2011

Love the flavors! I normally use regular tomatoes, seeded and cut up, and often use leftover chicken, but otherwise I make this as specified and it's terrific. As another reviewer mentioned, it's also great on mixed greens as a salad.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2011

My entire family loved this and asks for it often! We serve it as written or with mixed greens as a salad. love it!
