MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2011

"I doubled the recipe and made 4 stuffed tomatoes. It made a pretty presentation, but next time I will just make a salad. It wasn't worth it for the amount of time it took to de-seed and make the tomato shells, as well as chop the other vegetables. The dressing could use something to improve the flavor...maybe some onions."
