This dish gets five stars for the experience of going to the farmers market and getting all these fresh veggies and putting the beautiful platter together. It has tons of yummy options, such as meats and olives and can be suited to meet your needs or what's in your pantry. This is a great platter for entertaining because it tastes great and looks wonderful. We looked for the wine, but couldn't find it in Dallas.

I made this over the weekend for a pool party with a large attendance, and it went over great! The vegetarian guests appreciated it too--I put the meat on a separate tray. I made just a few changes because of the number of guests--I doubled the marinade, used a full pound of plum tomatoes, and I used 8 oz. each of prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and salami. I also doubled the capers and the basil. Finally, I used whole queen olives stuffed with garlic cloves instead of slicing the olives. This was delicious and simple to put together. The only problem I had was that the eggplant came out a little chewy--but I may have left it on the grill a bit too long. I will definitely make this again.

This presents so beautifully on a platter, and it tastes delicious. As an FYI - if you grill up all the vegetables suggested, it feeds a lot more than four people, even as a main meal. And the wine suggested in the magazine - Valpolicella - was perfect with it.

This recipe is incredible! The flavors are delicious and the serving size is quite large. I served it with suggested meats and cheeses. Since I do not have an outdoor grill, I used a stovetop grill pan - which worked fine but I had to cook in batches. I will definitely make this again - what a wonderful way to enjoy vegetables!

Fantastic and easy, a great way to serve vegetables in the summer. My 1 and 3 year ate a ton! I skipped the meat suggestions and served with grilled chicken.

I was asked to bring an appetizer to a friends party. OMG! Very impressive! Everyone at the party raved about this dish! You will need a large platter!
