"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."

"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!"
