This is the perfect recipe to make in the summer when tomatoes are in season. I bring it to parties all the time. I couldn’t wait though and made it the other day at the first sign of spring! The flavors of the vegetables and fresh herbs blend so nicely together, it makes for a very refreshing appetizer or light lunch. The best part is, this actually tastes better the next day!
