      Delicious! I loved the combo of was very reminiscent of my favorite muffaletta sandwich. The red pepper added just the right amount of bite. The only change I made was to add about a TB of chopped roasted red bell pepper for a bit of visual interest. (I don't think I could really taste it). I served with pita crisps. Garlicky goodness!

      I've been wanting to makes this recipe for sometime now, and now I know why. It is fabulous. It doesn't look the prettiest, but the taste is amazing. Thanks for posting.

      A little hot, spicy and salty, this spread went great atop some Ritz crackers for a snack! We loved this and will be having it again! Thanks!
