Fantastic!! This was so delicious. Made this for the day after Thanksgiving (how much turkey can you eat???) Here in the permafrost, November is not within our 45 day growing season, I still used the cherry tomatoes from the store. I don't know where they come from, but it was still yummy. Thanks Evelyn!!

This is a great side dish for this time of year. It's colorful, easy, tasty, and quick. We served it alongside a veggie chicken patty on a bun with fixins.
