Creamy and full of fresh cucumber flavor, this classic Greek dip is a great appetizer served with pita bread, crackers or vegetables. This dip is also a must-have accompaniment to marinated lamb chunks cooked on a skewer.—Lisa Stavropoulos, Stouffville, Ontario
“I love throwing themed get-togethers. This appetizer was the hit of 'Mediterranean Night.' The fresh garden flavors in the tomatoey salsa are outstanding with a crusty, chewy baguette.“ —Jodie Gharbi, San Antonio, Texas
This recipe started out as a salad, which I re-created after a trip to Greece. When my husband suggested I serve the mixture in phyllo cups, it became my most-requested appetizer!—Radelle Knappenberger, Oviedo, Florida
The refreshing taste of these Mediterranean-flavored bites will have guests going back for seconds. But they can do so without guilt because this great appetizer is so healthful.

Add a little crunch to dinner with Garlic-Sesame Pita Chips—all you need is 15 minutes and a few basic ingredients. With their crisp texture, these chips are a wonderful addition to casseroles, salads and soups, but they’re also great alone as a snack. Helen B. Forsythe of Puyallup, Washington shares the recipe.
Save yourself a trip to Greece and serve this appetizer pizza at your next holiday party. To ensure a crisp and flaky crust, before assembling the pizza, drain the tomato slices on a paper towel to soak up any extra moisture. —Claire Torrice, Oswego, New York
