Oh Tink, yum! I followed this recipe nearly to a T - only leaving out the black olives, blech. The sea salt is a nice addition instead of regular table salt. LOVE the bacon addition. It's a nice blend of ingredients and flavors. I will be making this often this summer. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag - Thanks! :)
