I made this twice last week...once for family in town, then also for an appetizer to take out of town. Both times it was a pretty good hit...the second time I think it tasted better because it sat for 3 or 4 days in the fridge before we ate it. The flavors definitely intensify as they sit in the fridge. I only had tomatoes that were dry, not the kind packed in olive oil. Next time I will use the kind that come in oil, I have used them before and thought they had alot more flavor. I just had a package of the dried ones that I wanted to use up. I served with homemade flax seed crackers, and carrot sticks. Yum!
