      This simple side dish is absolutely luscious, with the bonus that it's easy to prepare. Perfect, in particular, for garlic lovers! Take the recipe's advice about using firm tomatoes to heart; the slices will fall apart if the tomatoes are soft.

      Easy and delicious. I didn't have any hot peppers, so I used cayenne instead, which gave the tomatoes a real nice bite. This is a great tasting side dish, which I'll be making often. Thanks Mirj
