kraft kitchens tips

Prepare as directed, using KRAFT Light Italian Dressing and PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
There’s no need to chop the grilled tomatoes, after grilling, they become soft enough to toss lightly and serve over the breads.
The salsa can be made a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator until ready to assemble.
