    This Brushetta was colorful and so tasty. Just prior to serving I drained some of the excess mositure. It was a real hit.  -  27 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! My family loved it!  -  26 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Definitely a different take on one of my favourites, bruschetta, but I found it to be a little too sweet. I love papayas, but the dressing ruined it for me. The sauce went all runny, and by the time it was served, I had soggy bread. Don't think I'll be making this one again.  -  02 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
