Made half a recipe with fresh cherry tomatoes from the garden. Think I added too much feta so will measure next time. Served with Gourmet Greek Burgers. Yummy.
Love these tomatoes. We've been going easy on the bread since Christmas, so served them over an undressed green salad instead. Cut back on the oil (used 1/2 cup) and added a slosh of balsamic vinegar. I will make these often. Thanks so much for posting such a useful recipe.
