Greek Layer Dip
Serve this zesty Mediterranean spin on traditional seven-layer dip with pita chips for a delightful party starter.
Classic Roasted Salsa
Having salsa on hand is a must in summer. This homemade version is so easy, why even bother with store-bought? We love the deep, slightly smoky flavors in this version.
Smoked Salmon Dip with Bagel Chips
This dip is what bagels dream about. With a kick of horseradish, this smoked salmon dip packs all the flavors of your favorite New York deli in to one bite.
Mussels in White Wine and Garlic
Be sure to buy live mussels. Any open mussels that do not close when you press their shells a few times are dead, and you should discard them.
The pan juices that are released from baking the scallops mix with creme fraiche and white wine to create a delicious garlicky sauce. Serve this gratin with crusty bread for dipping, or for a heartier dish, serve over thin spaghetti tossed in olive oil.
Taco Truck-Style Guacamole
The acid in the tomatillos will keep your guacamole bright green even if not serving right away.
Baked Feta-Marinara Dip
Doctor homemade or store-bought marinara with smoky piquillo peppers and tangy feta cheese for an irresistible dip that comes together in a flash. Serve with plenty of crostini to sop up every last bit of sauce.
