“It’s easy to double this great recipe for a crowd. You can make the tomato topping ahead, or keep it simple and serve it as a dip for the French bread slices.” —Marie Cosenza, Cortlandt Manor, New York
This creamy topping has a subtle tang that pairs perfectly with crisp rye bread. “We enjoy this simple recipe at our summer deck parties,” says Missie Klei from Cincinnati, Ohio. “It’s ideal for unexpected guests or a quick snack.”
This colorful toss combines cauliflower and black and green olives with sweet peppers and red onion for a satisfying blend of flavors. The lemony vinaigrette coats the salad well and gives it a pleasing tartness.

"One night when my husband and I needed a quick supper, I threw together this satisfying soup using only what we had on hand," shares Margaret Glassic of Easton, Pennsylvania. "It's a family favorite, and it's good for us, too!"
This party hit was inspired by a dish I ate at a restaurant. It’s best served chilled and should marinate for a few days—the longer the better. My daughter likes to put the mozzarella on her antipasti platters. —Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
