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!

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."
