Oh WOW! I had so many compliments on this dip! Rich and delicious, certainly not something you would eat every day, but for a special occasion, it is perfect (I served it with veggies and crackers at my son's wedding.) I wanted the tomato and pesto flavour throughout, so I chopped the tomatoes finely and put most of them and most of the pesto in with the cream cheese mixture. I didn't mold it because I didn't get a chance to try it ahead and I didn't want to risk it collapsing. I used the remainder of the tomatoes and pesto to garnish the top. I actually forgot to use the pine nuts, but I really don't see how they could improve it. However, next time I will include them and see. This recipe is a definite keeper!

This is a fabulous spread I found on another website. It is very unusual, colorful and tastes amazing! I halved the recipe and it was plenty. It is wonderful for a wine-tasting party. I served it with toasted baguette slices. I drained the sundried tomatoes and pesto because the oil tends to "pool" on the serving plate.

I found this recipe looking for something to bring to a tapas party and decided to try this one. It was easy, looked great and people really loved it. I made it with unsalted butter and was glad because feta is a pretty salty cheese but realized after getting it all layered together that I had forgotten the vermouth! Oh well, it tasted 5 stars without and next time I make it will be sure to add it. My 11 year old son helped in the making process and he thought it was fun to do.

This was a big hit! I didn't change a thing. We thought it would be great around Christmas because of the colors.

Excellent recipe. I served as an appetizer for a Spanish ethnic dinner & there were several good responses. I don't care for pine nuts so I substituted chopped water chestnuts. Very tasty & a great combination of ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

This recipe is an incredibly easy and delicious one for dinner party. I needed a cold tappa for a dinner club and wow...this is a keeper. My nine year old was able under supervision to make this in about 30 minutes. The flavors are so well blended together and the presentation is gorgeous.
