Savory salami, cool cream cheese mixed with herbed cheese then rolled up into a yummy appetizer ~ this is one quick, retro recipe that is always a hit when hosting friends on the spur of the moment! Entertaining doesn’t have to be stressful, especially when you’ve got an easy recipe you can whip up.I always keep a few ingredients in my fridge and pantry to have something to nibble on when friends stop by. Like these ingredients which actually do double duty so there’s no worries if I don’t use them for my roll-ups. I learned a long time ago that when I do my grocery shopping, to purchase food that I could use in more than one recipe and to always keep my pantry stocked with no-fuss staples. That’s where this recipe comes in. With friends stopping by this weekend, I had all I needed for a nice little platter filled with fresh veggies along with something unexpected.I call this a retro recipe because I somehow remember this being served at gatherings my parents used to attend. No, I’m not that old but I can recall lively games of Canasta being played with adults having fun and of course, enjoying a few appetizers and cold drinks. I love making these little roll-ups for a number reasons. They come together in no time, can be made ahead of time and are kid and adult approved. As my friends know, my door is always open and there’s always something yummy waiting on them when they get here!
