Napoleon, did I realize that I haven't yet posted my favorite go to appetizer; the one I go for when I am having a party and am short on time.This is such a simple and easy recipe that even Aishwarya or Jai could make it(and often ends up making thus giving me more time to concentrate on other courses.)This sure would be crowd pleaser.
