Very easy to make. I used cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. They were the best ones I could find this time of year. It made a large amount and everyone just loved it!

Great. I used chicken instead of the crab meat and served as a main course. Next time I'm going to try keilbasa. I had been searching for a recipe like this. Thank you.
