A little French …a little Italian …and the end result is a sensational appetizer. A scrumptious spinach/basil pesto is whirled in the food processor until of spreading consistency. Slices of baguette are lightly toasted and then anointed with the pesto.
This dressing has a cider vinegar and oil base with a smidgen of onion juice and mustard stirred in for bite, and lots of sugar for an overall sweetness. And of course, there are lots of tiny poppy seeds. Makes a sweet cabbage slaw and is perfect over fresh summer fruit.
This good looking bread bowl appetizer is always popular at parties. A hollowed loaf of pumpernickel is filled with a simple spinach dip.
