Top Review by Andi of Longmeadow

Saw this today, on "photo of the day" and "recipe of the day" and had to make it right away for "Saturday Lunch at the Farm". I had everything on hand from the farm, so this was easy, and a joy to behold. I wish I could eat this everyday, it just brings a smile to your day, and extra skip to your step. The layering was perfect, the dressing of the vegetables, spot on. Thank you for bringing such a joy to our day! Made for Derf, August 2009. Just because.
