Recipe by larchie

This is a recipe which makes for fabulous party food; you can make it ahead of time (in fact, you have to), and everyone loves it. Simply serve it in a pretty bowl with toothpicks, skewers, or forks for serving. This has become a new staple as the perfect hors douvre.

I made this for My daughters HS Graduation Party! It was a big hit! I've had several people ask for the recipe. The only thing I changed was, I didn't have any tarragon vinegar, so I used a little some cider vinegar instead. I will definately be making this again! I may even kick it up a bit and add some jalapeno juice! :)
