      This is sooooo good! I prepped all of the ingredients ahead of time and it was then so easy to put together. I loved the combination of the balsamic, capers, and feta. Thanks for a nice keeper. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

      We really enjoyed this recipe for dinner tonight. It was quick and easy, requiring minimal prep, with a nice, complimentary blend of flavors. We especially enjoyed the combination of balsamic, capers and feta. Made as directed and thought it required no modifications--perfect as posted. Served with Green Beans With Lemon-Garlic Seasoning 366059. Made for ZWT6. Thanks!
