Expert Tips

This appetizer is a healthful, low-fat addition to the holiday party or dinner menu.

Sun-dried tomatoes lend foods a rich, intense tomato flavor. They are sold dry, or packaged in plain or seasoned oil. Dry sun-dried tomatoes are often soaked in water or oil before use in recipes.

Blanching vegetables intensifies their color and removes any slight bitter flavor. However, this step can be omitted.
