I always come home with an empty container when I bring this dish to a partym and I've used the recipe for years. It can be made ahead to free up time later. I serve it with pretty party picks for a festive, holiday look. —Peggy Cairo, Kenosha, Wisconsin

"I made this over the Christmas holidays and everybody loved it. I used bottled sundried tomato bruschetta in place of the sundried tomatoes and I doubled it. It worked perfectly and was much easier than having to chop up the sundried tomatoes. Next time I think I will try it with fresh mozzarella. Great recipe!!"

"These were just OK -- perhaps they needed to marinate over night to be more flavorful."

"This is much better if using fresh mozzarella. Otherwise, I would lower the oil and lower the garlic as some people don't like itl. This makes it better for all in my opinion. : )"

"Great appetizer for a party without being the same old plain, cut up cubes of cheese, which has gotten a bit boring in my book. This recipe has the contemporary flavors that are welcome at gatherings and easy to assemble!"

"I made this for a party over the weekend and it was an instant hit! I would suggest tasting your cheese, if you're using fresh cheese that doesn't have much salt in it I would add a little. Definitely go by your taste-buds though."

"Served this as a Christmas appetizer at our family party, and it was a hit. Looked festive with the red sun dried tomatoes and green herbs. Ended up with an empty dish! Made about 2 hrs in advance and kept refrigerated until time to serve."

"This was ok .. basically just herbs and oilve oil .. a little too much on the oily side for me. I may make it again as part of a cracker tray or something as half my family like it but half didn't."
