I know you said we would not miss the salt. Sorry, we had to salt the tomatoes wedges first. Next time a few slices of Mozzarella.

This is a delightful recipe! The cayenne gives just an extra little spark (but can easily be left out if you have someone-like my dad-who absolutely can't eat pepper). Great to keep on hand when your garden is going crazy!

I have made this recipe many times for potlucks and it is always a hit.

It was very good and easy to prepare too. I'll probably make it again but with some slight modifications as my husband said it "needed something."
