    Too much breadcrumb, or not enough tomato - I'm not sure which. This recipe is good but it would be much better with about half the breadcrumb. It is dry as is... - 29 Sep 2008


    Excellent fresh flavour! I pulsed the ingredients in the food processor and spread it on toasted french bread. - 29 Sep 2008


    I loved this, very different. just enough bite! great with crackers or bread. and does not need to be kept cold. - 29 Sep 2008
