This dish was inspired by an impromptu trip to Outback Steakhouse. They have a similar dish on their menu, we tried it, loved it, and then decided to try to recreate it at home.
I will say right now, that I enjoyed the dish I made at home a lot better than what we ate at Outback.
This recipe is SO simple and easy….and fresh. Did I mention that this dish is easy?
Oh, and it tastes so great. We ate it for a Saturday afternoon lunch. It was absolutely perfect.
The Outback version was served with bruschetta, but C.J. and I tend to enjoy softer bread, so I grabbed some focaccia bread from our bakery.
This dish would be great for a get together or potluck.
