This is good stuff!!! Easy to make, savory and tangy! I could see adding a little parmesan cheese and just making a meal out of this one. Thanks for the recipe!!

What a light side dish! I did add some diced onion for crunchiness; and some Zest from the squeezed lemon to increase the tart taste. Didn't change the basic recipe. I served it cold; was very delish!

Reds, I love this. I made 2 servings and squeezed 1/2 of a lemon into it and for my taste that was a good amount and the capers are a great touch. Aside from the extra lemon I followed the recipe and it worked very well. Easy to make and lots of flavor. I paired it with lemon sauteed shrimp. Yummm!
