All my favorites--tomatoes, lots of bell pepper, feta, arugula, kalamatas, oregano--what's not to love? (Well, the salt would have been, if I had added it--the feta, olives and capers provided quite as much saltiness as I needed. But I omitted it, so all was well.) Enjoyed the lemon juice in place of the more usual vinegar, too. By the way, sorry I don't have a camera, because it's also very pretty.
This was the first recipe that I took from this web site and it was a real winner. The only thinkg that it could have used was some freshly ground pepper. I prepared it for Father's Day and everyone just loved it. My husband said I should keep it in my recipe file. Reva
