We had a bbq last week for the holiday and I was itching to try something new! I take advantage of parties like this to make something with dairy in it, since we don't have it otherwise. This is a spin-off of this picture I saw on Nina's Recipes. She has GORGEOUS pictures, and is a wonderful photographer. It makes me slightly embarrassed to post my pictures after looking at her blog.
but I do anyway, since I'm really only here for the food!
Here's what you'll need:
- cream cheese
- dry italian salad dressing mix
- colorful bell peppers
- toothpicks (not pictured)
Slice your peppers into long thin strips. I really love the colors together, it was just so bright and festive!
Smear some cream cheese on a slice of ham.
Add a slice of cheese, smear some more cream cheese, and top that with some pepper slices (1 of each color)
Roll them up and secure them with a toothpick. You can serve them whole, or cut them in half (thus showing off how pretty they are inside).
They were goobled up pretty fast. I might have had more than my fair share. But I made them, so technically the whole platter is my fair share, right?
- 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese
- 2-3 colorful bell peppers
- about 15 slices of ham
- about 15 slices of cheese
- 1 pkg dry Italian salad dressing mix
