Oh my gosh! You may not be able to stay away from this appetizer plate. My neighbor from Chicago gave me this recipe a few days ago - it is to die for! If you want to be the hit of the party, take this with you! The red, green, and white colors make for a gorgeous presentation.

Oh so yummy! I made this to serve at a church meeting and everyone gobbled it up! Definitely a keeper! It was very easy to make but made for a very impressive presentation! Thanks for this great post! The only variation I made is that I made garlic toast to serve this on. I sliced french bread to make snack sized peices, then I spread them on a broiler pan, drizzled olive oil over them, and then sprinkeld them with garlic, parsley, and a touch of paprika. Flavors blended nicely.
