We like ours a little chunkier and not as pureed as most - so bear that in mind as you prepare this summer treat!!! An easy dish to whip up for any size group - just increase ingredients proportionately. I grew up eating this - my Dad made it ALL the time for many occassions!! Thanks, Dad!!! ****Cook time is CHILL time. ;) On a side note - a little splash of white wine added to this doesn't hurt if you are of a mind to do so - we generally do!

I cut the recipe in half--it made for a nice lunch. I found I liked it a bit better after adding a bit of wine vinegar and a bit of worcestershire sauce.

This as is was a little oily for my taste, however, I added a generous splash of blasamic vinegar and that helped greatly. The only thing I omitted was the green peppers, they don't like me too much. Otherwise great recipe.
