Exceptional flavors, easy to prepare. Make a meal with salad, cut into pieces for hors d'oeuvres, include them in your barbeque buffet.

Wow! That was one of the best things I've ever made/had in my life. Such a hidden gem. I made few changes. I used regular italian bread instead of ciabatta, pepper jack cheese instead of mozzarella, and I used Recipe #176624 . It was out of this world delicious! Thank you.
