Appetizer Make Ahead Spinach Phyllo Feta Cheese Easy Delicious Party

This is a wonderful appetizer made with a healthy veggie! Spinach is a very nutritious and delicious vegetable. It is quite versatile and therefore can be used in many different recipes. This vegetable can be eaten cooked or raw as a salad. The wonderful thing about using it in salads is that it can be flavored with either sweet dressings and fruit added or with more tart dressings with mushrooms and onions. The choice is yours.

However the variety of the vegetable goes even further when it is used in recipes like the one here as an appetizer. This has such a unique tender flavor, it is sure to become one of your favorites. You will love to watch the video and learn how easy this is and then realize how nice it is to have some ready and in the freezer for those spontaneous evenings.

      Very nice lens on a Greek traditional recipe. Yours is also interesting in the part of the freezing section which I never thought of doing it. Well executed:=)

      Of course I would. I usually have not a lot of time to cook, although I like it, and when I invite my friends home I usually serve some pre-made food as appetizers. Good suggestions for appetizers, I´ll try them!!!
