MY REVIEW

"To cut back on the sodium, i used fresh artichoke (baked in the oven), black olives, and made my own Greek seasonings without salt. Will definitely make again using my substitutions."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2010

"Tasty recipe but sodium too high for us so I substituted black olives and half feta/half cubed part skim mozzarella second time I made it. Still great but not so salty. Popular whenever I serve it."
