    Very good though it benefited from some extra seasoning and some olives. Made this for a potluck and it was very popular. - 8/27/13

    This was very good, just a little bland. I kicked it up with some garlic powder, more basil & oregano & some dill, plus a little more vinegar. Was a hit at Memorial Day picnic! - 5/28/13

  • Incredible!
    Changed up the veggies a bit and only added the red pepper and substituted green onions for red. Also added a bit more vinegar. This was a fabulous side dish for both fish and chicken (used it 2 days in a row!). Definitely will make again! - 4/14/12
