      What a wonderful mix of goodies. Just delicious and not nearly as time consuming as the list of ingredients might suggest. Leftovers will be welcomed. Very, VERY good.

      This was surprisingly easy and quick to prepare; don't be put off by the long list of ingredients. I substituted marinated artichoke hearts for the sun-dried tomatoes, since no one else in the household will touch a tomato. I will leave out the chick peas next time, not because they didn't taste good, but because to me they just didn't "blend in" as well as the other ingredients. This was a perfect light dinner, and a nice change of pace. I definitely recommend this recipe.

      This is the perfect salad for an outdoor BBQ. I loved the flavor of the smoky mozzrella cheese. This one is really loaded with all kind of good stuff that go together real well. Don't let the long list of ingredients fool ya. This one goes together quickly and I kept it in the refrigerator until we were ready. Thanks evelyn.
