This convenient and colorful party classic from Linda Austin in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, can be made several days in advance. In fact, it actually tastes better if prepared ahead so all the fresh flavors can blend together. Best served at room temperature with a crusty loaf of toasted French bread or your favorite crackers.
This recipe's specially seasoned rub gives tender juicy pork a slightly spicy flavor. You'll watch in delight as these delicious sandwiches disappear from your buffet table! I also like to prepare these for weekend lunches.
My husband and I have a large garden with red potatoes so I am always trying to come up with creative ways to use them in recipes. My son calls these tasty noshes potato poppers. They're delicious and low calorie. —Karen Sulak, Lampasas, Texas
My family and I enjoy eating this with tortilla chips, crackers and just about anything else we can find to dip into it—including our fingers!
We truly do live out in the country. Our area's so remote that we don't even have a telephone! My husband and I have four children, and I try lots of the recipes I find in Country Woman.
These cute kabobs from Pat Schmidt of Sterling Heights, Michigan will lend a little Italian flavor to any get-together. Cheese tortellini is marinated in salad dressing, then skewered into toothpicks along with stuffed olives, salami and cheese.
This is a great appetizer, especially when having company over for a barbecue. I had something similar at a Memorial Day party and I tried to recreate the flavor with lower fat ingredients.

After my mild green chilies are roasted, I peel, dice and freeze them to use all year. This colorful zesty salsa is great with chips or served with other dishes.—Terry Thompson, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Whether served as an appetizer or alongside an entree, Karen Conklin's deviled eggs offer a welcomed change of pace. That's because the Santee, South Carolina reader fills them with a creamy combination that includes crabmeat, hot pepper sauce and a dash of cayenne.
