Color, texture and a fantastic blend of flavors—this salsa has it all. It's easy to adapt to the taste preferences of your family or guests. I've made it dozens of times, and it's foolproof! —Heidi Mitchell, Cornwall, Prince Edward Island

"This was delicious. I made the following changes: red wine vinegar instead of balsamic, Penzey's Tuscan Sunset instead of greek seasoning and Kalamatra olives instead of black olives. I used only 1 teaspoon of the Tuscan seasoning. I think 2 1/2 teaspoons would be too much."

"You can buy Greek seasoning in many grocery stores on the baking aisle with the other herbs and spices. The brand name I get is Cavender's. and it comes in both regular and salt free. I've bought it in local Wal Marts and Krogers, so I'm sure it must be available in most large cities."

"How do you quarter a grape tomato? I agree add kalamata olives and Greek oregano and it's fine."

"Add a little lemon juice, and kalamata instead of ripe olives, cut out the balsamic and it's a perfect recipe. ;-)"

"This was delicious! I would use this as a bruschetta topping! Had it with pita chips (Stacey's) rather than making my own and it got eaten up at a get together we had. Would definitely make this again."
