This was truly outstanding! all of my favorite ingredients in here. This takes a bit of time to put together but well worth the effort. I did reduce the dill to only 1/2 teaspoon and increased the olive oil, I did top with feta and Kalamata olives. This is best eaten at room temperature. We loved this! thanks Bunny Mom!...Kitten:)
