Used different ingredients. I added Feta instead of tofu and loved it! I can't wait for my garden to get going and use this all summer! Great recipe to take for family picnics! - 24 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Excellent! Skipped the tofu because I don't like it, and added 1 tsp. minced garlic. Delicious! - 24 Jul 2008
