We made this dish for the fouth of July, and it was a hit! The best part is the creamy soft cheese mixed with the scent of fresh herbs, and crisp vegetables. It is great because you can make it ahead, and it gets better as you wait to serve it.

We couldn't agree more with Libby; the mozzarella cheese and herbs in this dish are a real winning combination... Blue Ribbon winning, in fact! Thanks for sharing, Libby. The Test Kitchen
