Irish eyes will be smiling when you serve this mouth-watering menu to mark St. Patrick's Day.

Both the savory sandwiches and diamond-shaped dessert bars can easily be prepared ahead of time.

The creamy soup is a snap to simmer together—it uses mashed potato flakes, so there's no peeling or cutting potatoes. And the lively lime beverage can be stirred up as soon as guests arrive.

Shamrock Sandwiches
Dill and Dijon mustard add zip to the creamy corned beef filling in these party Shamrock Sandwiches. Or substitute horseradish for the mustard and garlic powder for the dill for a fun variation.
