I'm SO GLAD i got to make this!!! And finally used some of my RAZOR sharp mandolines that I had gotten for Christmas! I made it early in the day, and didn't slice it til it was actually cold. Sliced like a dream!! (Well half the slices did! LOL!) Saved the pretty ones for my sandwich!! :) LOL! Absolutely delicious!!! I did add some garlic, though, but I LOVE garlic so that's just me! ;) Thanks so much! Made for the ZWT5!

With all the food I've been making, I just had to cut this back by 2/3 & it served 2 of us very nicely for a lunch! Really appreciated the easy prep, too! This is definitely a recipe I'll be making again! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed while in France during the ZWT5]
