As others have said, it's not easy to get these cut uniformly. If the great taste matched the presentation, I'd have rated this a 5-star recipe.
Made this for a potluck today, tripled the recipe, left out onions since there was some in the salsa and no olives because I was unsure about what everyone would like at the potluck. I had none left over to bring home and had to make more because my kids were disappointed they didn't get any for supper. Thanks for the recipe!
I have been on the hunt for a good "cold-food" appetizer, and these exceeded my expectations! They disappeared very quickly, so I will definitely need to double the recipe next time! Because we have some picky eaters in our family, I left out the onions and olives, but they turned out great that way.
This is my go to recipe when I want to feed a crowd and please everyone!
My family loved this and asks that I make it for our family parties. I can never get them to cut nicely. My always end up rather oval shaped, but they taste delicious.
