Pretzel Crisps Make Fun Appetizers

Check out new Pretzel Crisps by the makers of New York Style Bagel Chips and Pita chips!

They’re perfect for fun appetizers.  Above left is smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill atop an “Everything”-flavored pretzel crisp.  Above left is jalapeno cheddar and salami atop an Original flavor.  More pairing ideas on the website.

I’m not a huge pretzel person, but I preferred this shape (and ease of adding other flavors) compared to regular pretzels.  I served them with a cheesy sage dip at a recent dinner party and people seemed to enjoy them.  Thanks to Shaina for sending some samples my way.

Primo Naturale Salami: Good on a cheese plate

There are two kinds of people: those who consider a cheese-only cheese plate sufficient, and those who are looking for a little more.

I love cheese, don’t get me wrong. But when I’m drinking wine and chatting with friends, I’m a lot happier when there are a couple of other choices on the cheese plate.

Primo Naturale Salami is a great addition because it complements cheese, is substantive for those who are getting impatient for a real meal, and… who doesn’t like salami? (Don’t answer that.) Add a bunch of grapes, some crackers, and a few olives, and voila- you’re host[ess] with the most[ess].

Another reason I love this brand of salami is because of its coatings: black pepper (quite spicy, which I love) and, my favorite, herbs with wine. [The prices on the website are for cases of 16, so don’t be alarmed. There’s also a wishlist function!] Plus, it’s nitrite-free, nitrate-free and antibiotic-free, even if it’s not, you know, free.
