      Since DH and I don't eat poultry, we made this for Thanksgiving dinner. Excellent flavor. I followed the recipe as writen, except that I, like the previous reviewer, also did my slicing by hand. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting!

      simple, light meal. I had no mandoline so I hand cut everything. It came out great though slightly more time consuming. Also, I had no oilves in house so I substitued capers and was satisfied.
