Notes

This recipe comes from a food blog, chowtimes.com, and I chose to share, as this recipe is great for the holidays - it's a delicious, easy-to-make-and-serve, healthy appetizer. I served at a recent get together, and it was a serious hit! I rarely encounter anyone who's not a fan of garlic. Happy Holidays!
