As a salad or appetizer, these tangy mushrooms are a welcome addition to any meal or party buffet table. It doesn't take long for a whole bowlful to be devoured. I love to cook with fresh mushrooms - a crop our state is well known for.

Brenda Snyder from Hesston, Pennsylvania notes, "This is a nice way to serve mushrooms as an appetizer...and it also makes a great side dish for any type of meat. Sometimes I add these tangy mushrooms to salads for extra flavor, too."

Andrea Bolden from Unionville, Tennessee writes, "With its colorful flecks of green onion and pimiento, this cheese ball is great as a Christmas or New Year's appetizer. It can be made with fat-free cheeses without sacrificing the zesty Italian taste."
"I first tasted this when a friend made it for a church social," recalls Mary Lou Little of Salt Lake City, Utah." "It's so refreshing with fresh summer fruit, but it's also wonderful in the winter with apples, oranges and bananas."
