Grilled Juustoleipa and Vegetable Antipasto Platter
Juustoleipa, with origins in Finland and Sweden, means “bread cheese.” The cheese becomes soft and “squeaky” when heated, but it will hold its shape. Enjoy this salad as a vegetarian entrée or side dish. Features zucchini, yellow summer squash, sweet red bell pepper and asparagus.
Fresh Corn Nachos with Muenster and Salsa Cruda
Guests will find this colorful, hearty appetizer hard to resist! Mild muenster is a delicious topping for nachos, because it’s a wonderful melting cheese. It has a mild flavor, allowing the seasoned corn, smoked turkey and salsa to shine in this recipe.
