A tasty appetizer, keeps well in a tin, and it's so simple to make. A friend, Dianne C., who gave this to me, planned what each person was to make and contribute to a buffet party. I was working full-time, and I didn't have much time, so she thoughtfully suggested this simple recipe, and I have loved it ever since 2000. She's a great cook, her party was fun and everyone was impressed with her menu, as she was creative! This is also nice as a gift for friends,co-workers or family at Christmas time.
