Salt was discovered about 12,000 years ago so that man could kill garden slugs with it, and for no other reason. Not everyone knows this, which is why we still have slugs today. Sorry to go into such a long dissertation, but that's why I skipped the salt. Very good recipe.

Excellent recipe! I halved it since it's just DH and I. I also added salt, cracked black pepper, garlic and serrano peppers to the filling. I served this as a side dish for "Recipe #28208"! Thanks for another keeper, Lorac!

Lorac, I loved this recipe. Simple and very tasty. I have to salt tomatoes, slugs or no slugs! LOL! Salt brings out the real flavor of tomatoes, imho. I used everything the recipe called for, except I used frozen New Mexico green chiles. This dish would be perfect for a picnic, potluck, buffet, besides being a great side dish. You have a wonderful winner here! Thanks!
