      This is a great appetizer. But I would omit the salt next time. I don't care if it's too liquid. It was too salty that way. We're not used to add salt because of DH's high blood pressure. I used yellow tomatoes from my garden. I used fresh mozzarella. Thanks MizEmerilLagasse :) Made for Newest Zaar tag game
