My family just loves the blend of flavors in this easy to prepare recipe. Starting with prepared garlic bread, it makes a beautiful addition to grilled meats or stands alone as a light lunch or weekend meal when you just aren't hungry enough for something bigger.

Also can be used as a summertime appetizer for casual entertaining.

A wonderful way to use all of those beautiful vine ripened tomatoes from the garden, as well!
