I made 4 slices of this tonight using Recipe #462165 slices. It's really quick and the flavors are all great together. I love tomatoes but this made a yummy change up.

This was a big hit at my mom's 60th party. Very easy and very tasty. Thanks.

This was a very tasty snack for us today. I liked the combination of flavors, although I took a real lazy way of preparing it. I didn't use roasted garlic, just some finely chopped and used the roasted red peppers in a jar which we really like. For personal preference I added some extra lemon juice to mine. thanks for sharing a wonderful dish.
