Mexican fare only gets better when topped with Anna Yeatts' colorful Fresh Salsa. The Pinehurst, North Carolina cook uses ripe tomatoes, crisp onion and a touch of minced serrano pepper, making it just as good as a side dish or appetizer with crunchy baked tortilla chips!
My son, Tyler, loves these and even asked me to make them for his school party instead of cupcakes! Now his classmates love them, too, and I make them for every party. To keep it easy, I usually get the veggies from the grocery store's salad bar. —Beverly M. Jones, Cambridge, Maryland
“Filled with a sweet potato mixture, these delicious wraps are great for vegetarians and they’re relatively high in fiber, too,” raves Mary Beth Harris-Murphree of Tyler, Texas. Served with salsa, they’re sure to disappear from appetizer trays fast.

Garden-fresh zucchini and cherry tomatoes are tastefully combined in these colorful appetizers. Writes Amy Frombach of Bradford, Pennsylvania, "Folks tend to hang around the appetizer tray whenever I serve these pretty party bites."
