Surf & Turf Spinach Roll Ups

"This is a different take on the usual spinach roll up appetizer. Very tasty. NOTE: Should your yogurt be loose or runny, drain for a couple of hours in a coffee filter set in a strainer to get rid of some of the excess moisture."

    This is certainly very tasty! I made one half of the recipe, using regular mayo, crabmeat and the rest of the ingredients as listed. My nonfat yogurt was very loose, so I think this affected the consistency of the spread, even after chilling overnight. Mine stayed a little soft, but did not affect the taste. I really admire people that can roll these type of recipes into a round roll! LOL! You could successfully double or triple this recipe for appetizers. This is not a "daintly" flavored appetizer! The spices and other ingredients meld and are heartily flavored. Next time, to tweak it to my personal taste, I would cut back a little on the dill and definitely try it with shrimp too! Very good! I will remember this one when making appetizers for parties or just a small get together! Thanks MysteryGirl!

Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. <br /> <br />Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything.</p> 8724616"
