I used all fresh ingredients: parsley and tomatoes from the garden, and homemade bread. I added some fresh garlic, and used red onions instead of shallots. Overall, the recipe was a winner at a July 4th cookout, but I think it needed more zing. Next time around, I'll start with a different recipe, or add more of my own tweaks.
