    BecR's Note:

    Sun-dried tomatoes, olives, garlic, lemon, capers, and fresh herbs--we really love this combination of sunny mediterranean flavors--and the fact that it can mostly be made ahead! Prep time includes marinate time. Serve with a tossed salad, grilled zucchini, and jacket potatoes. Adapted from The New California Cook, by Diane Rossen Worthington.

      This was very juicy, flavorful, and tangy, especially from the lemon. I substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream only because mine was passed the expiration date. Made for My Three Chefs event.
