"So pretty and colorful, this is one of my favorites," says field editor Mary Detweiler of West Farmington, Ohio. "It's also nice as an appetizer alongside a summer salad or winter soup."

"This is very simple and very tasty. A good alternative to bruschetta. We look forward to making it with fresh peppers from our garden every year!"
