We loved this with our grilled dinner! The only thing I changed was I used halved grape tomatoes from our garden. CQ
This was nice. It had more flavor than I expected. The taste of summer vegetables not covered up with spicing. Didn't post a photo, as I accidentally put in 1 & 3/4 lb of tomatoes, not 3/4 lb. So mine was much more liquid than other peoples. I had to cook it a lot longer than the recipe suggested and even then DH complained it was too tough. But he likes mushy vegetables & I like mine chewier.
This is a very good side to any meat...we had a Greek grilled chicken with it. It has a very pleasant flavor. Made for ZWT # 6 - 2010
