Polenta Party Pleasers

Serve these at your next luncheon.

Here’s a recipe to serve at your next luncheon. Quick and easy to make, these delightful appetizers feature polenta rounds topped with a cool salad of chickpeas, diced tomato, garlic, feta cheese, and fresh dill—to add some spring color.

Make the polenta flavored to your liking—we added sundried tomato and garlic. Next, spread it on a baking sheet while still hot in about a 1/4″ layer, and stick it in the fridge for around an hour to set. Once firm, use a cookie cutter (or if you’re feeling like MacGyver, a juice glass) to cut small rounds out of the polenta.

Cook the rounds in an oiled skillet over medium heat until lightly browned on each side—about 5 minutes. Toss together the salad ingredients, top the rounds and watch them disappear.

These polenta rounds are a surefire way to please any crowd.

Until next time,

xoxo,

***When you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, many grocery stores have pre-made polenta in tubes which can be sliced into rounds and browned.
