YUM!  These are so simple and delicious!  We served them over toasted french bread, and everyone loved them.

LOVE!!!!  Quick, easy and amazingly tasty on those yummy fresh picked tomatoes from the garden.  I will make these again and again.  And my husband also just made them as a side dish at brunch with our eggs.
