"This recipe has been modified slightly over tim, but is always a winner, whether for an appetizer or main dish. It even works with winter store-bought tomatoes. The vinegar and basil bring out the flavors."

  1. Combine tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, basil, and garlic; let tomato mixture rest for 15 to 30 minutes.

I made this for the Recipe group selection of the week. Instead of heating the house up with the oven, we made this on the gas grill. Turned out perfect using an Italian bread loaf. Cut the loaf...

Yum! I have cherry tomatoes and basil growing out my ears this year. This was a great recipe to use them in. It's an easy recipe to use what's growing in your garden. I have mild banana instead ...

This was super tasty even after I modified it. who doesn't? took out the oil and cheese to make it healthier and let it sit. Even used dried basil and onion as I made this last minute and it was...

This was delicious. I committed the bell pepper and added salt and pepper.

This turned out incredible! My daughter, and grandmother loved it as well. They are 9 and 85! Just make sure you have enough people to enjoy it, or you will eat it all.
