These tender sandwiches will surely become the talk of any get-together. Helen Hassler of Denver, Pennsylvania hollows out sourdough baguettes before filling them with cucumber, cheese and marinated lamb and artichokes. Simply delicious, the mouthwatering bites are perfect for a spring brunch.
The light green, fresh-tasting dressing is the perfect accompaniment for steamed artichokes. CW's test kitchen staff liked the dip so much, they suggested making a double batch and thinning it down with a little milk to use as a regular salad dressing.
Wonderful flavors of garlic, rosemary and basil blend in this hearty spread! Lucky enough to have leftovers? Serve it with pita chips, veggies or as a sandwich topper. —DIANE NEMITZ, LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN
This pleasing dip gets its Greek-style flavor from the feta cheese and lemon peel. “Serve it with chips or raw vegetables when friends stop by, or try a spoonful on top of a baked potato.”—Emily R. Chaney, Blue Hill, Maine
“I came up with this take-off on Greek spanakopita (spinach pie) when I had an overabundance of asparagus and a package of phyllo dough,” says Colette Gerow of Raytown, Missouri. “Sometimes I add leftover chopped chicken and cut into larger triangles for meals.”
