In the heat of the summer, who wants to turn on the stove, let alone the oven? Guacamole, salsa, and other no-cook appetizer recipes just need you to put them together and maybe stick them in the fridge for awhile.
Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.
A Mexican style coleslaw that is great served with chips or as a condiment.

A brief and nice sauce for shrimp or VEGGIES!

This is the most wonderful ceviche ever. It is thick enough to be eaten as a meal and it is the only recipe I have found that kid's enjoy. It was made by Leo Longoria from south Texas and is perfect in every way. Any fish will do but I recommend Red Fish first. I have also tried with Crappie and it is wonderful.
Holiday or party favorite, adds color to your party table and can also be deviled for a colorful, as well as tasty, nibbler.
This is a fresh salsa mix that is easy and takes only minutes! Great with chips, or on tacos, in burritos, etc.
Makes a thick spreadable paste similar to the Loma Linda Sandwich Spread that has been discontinued or Humus. I like it on home made bread with a dill pickle but it is good plain. It is also an excellent cracker spread. Seasonings are optional; you can try other nut butters if you're not into peanuts.
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
While trying to watch our weight and still eat tasty foods, I've created a spicy white bean dip that's easy to make and a healthful choice to serve with veggies or breadsticks.
This salsa can be made by anyone that owns a decent knife & a cutting board. You don't need to know a thing about cooking, just know how to chop. I've had just 4 people eat the entire batch, it was so good. It tastes even better the next day!
This is a nice change from the traditional Mexican and tropical salsas, with a bit of a mediterranean touch this is great on grilled fish or chicken.
