Just a delicious bite of appetizer when having friends over. I have made this for over 20 years. It's always a hit!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is one of those classic appetizers that has been around for ages in different forms. Carol's method is easy and quick. You can easily keep all the ingredients on hand during the holidays and throw them together if you have any unexpected guests. It's a much more economical version of a shrimp cocktail. The flavorful cocktail sauce goes so well with cream cheese and shrimp. Delish!
