      Delicious Jackie, simply delicious. I loved the tomatoes, olives, lemon and cheese in this dish. What great flavor and texture this dish has. I enjoyed it for lunch yesterday. Thanks so much for sharing. Next time I make this and I will be making this again often, I think it will be a great summer lunch dish. I will omit the salt completely, as I found it a little salty.
