I love sharing recipes from my family and this one comes from my Aunt Lana.  She caters weddings and other parties and she always seems to have the most incredible recipes up her sleeve.  I was first introduced to a version of this recipe probably 7 or 8 years ago at a party for my cousin.

At first glance, I was blown away by how colorful and just gosh-darned beautiful this little appetizer was. But I figured I probably wouldn’t be that into it.  I mean, it’s just veggies after all.  I was SO wrong!

The spread is made with sour cream and cream cheese and any type of fresh or dried herbs you have on hand.  I used fresh chives and dill for this version and it was mouth-watering good.

Any veggies you like can be thrown into this recipe.  I usually see what looks good at the Farmer’s Market and go from there.  I do like to include red, yellow, and orange bell peppers each time because I think the colors are so vibrant and the peppers are nice and crunchy and sweet.  I used broccoli and cucumber for some vibrant green hues and then sprinkled the whole thing with more fresh chives.

I served this at my Bacardi party a couple of weeks ago and it was gone so fast – you wouldn’t believe it!  It’s so funny because people always think, “Oh.  Here, let me have some vegetables so I can feel good about what I’m eating.”  Then they try it and it’s like an epiphany  – SO GOOD!

I use a pizza cutter or a large knife to cut these bites down to size and throw them on some white platters that really show off all the beautiful colors.  Trust me, serve this at your next get-together this summer and watch them disappear :)

  5. I love cooking with crescent rolls. I recently made a cheese danish with it and it came out amazing. Goes to show you how versatile it can be to go from your savory to a sweet. I’m always looking for a good appetizer recipe so I can’t wait to try this out the next time I through a dinner party. :)

  8. These look delicious and a fun way to get your veggies in! We would love for you to share at our new Super Summer Saturday party here: http://www.thechirpingmoms.com/2013/06/super-summer-saturday.html

    Thanks!

  9. I love making this for parties. An easy trick is to buy a bag of Broccoli Slaw – it has lots of good stuff already chopped for the pizza and then I add radish slices etc. and finely shredded cheese on top. I also add
    Hidden Valley Ranch to the sour cream – yummy! My first time to visit your site – I will be back.

  10. This looks fantastic — I wonder if anyone has tried tweeking it a bit? Substituting yogurt for sour cream, and maybe just a pizza dough, rather than a commercial/chemical-laden croissant package? I’d love to make it even healthier!

  11. This looks so good!! I’m loving all the veggies, want for a snack right now :)

  12. Love these! Isn’t it funny how people actually love to see veggies at a party? Around Christmas time you have to try these in a tree shape with the rounds – so cute! And no cutting!

  13. I was introduced to a similar recipe at a Pampered Chef party years ago. They use dill with the sour cream mixture. Have you ever thought about putting shredded chicken and/or cheese on top too? The shredded chicken comes in cans like tuna. Yum!

  14. Taking the model described above, you have to make some friends and followers first.
    The site’s layout is simple on the eyes & visually pleasing as well.
    In explanation of this point we have to follow the money.

  15. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
