I love capers, and actually found this recipe by doing a search for them. This is a very light and simple dish. It's easy to make and very tasty.

Green olives w/ the pimento's can substitute for capers.

Can someone recommend a substitution for the capers? They are not a familiar ingredient to me so I hesitate to use them. Thank You

This was good, however, I would substitute capers for something else. I also added a little ranch dressing to my plate. Yummy!
