How to Use Fresh Produce Finds
Grilled Vegetable Pizza
Celery Bites with Assorted Fillings
Celery’s great versatility makes it a popular hors d’oeuvre offering—as a crudité with Marzetti® Veggie Dips or stuffed into mini “boats.” With topping suggestions ranging from crispy bacon and parsley to smoked salmon, capers, and lemon zest, this recipe offers the perfect celery bite for every appetite.
Dill Crab Cakes
These mouthwatering dill crab cakes are anything-but-dull thanks to the farm-fresh flavors of red peppers, parsley, and scallions. A side serving of Marzetti® Dill Veggie Dip—also used in the recipe—makes a tangy accompaniment.
Indian Spiced Carrots
Tender and oh-so-flavorful on their own, roasted carrots are elevated to a whole new level after a toss with fresh lemon juice, scallions, and cilantro. For added texture and taste, top with chopped pistachios and a dollop of Marzetti® Dill Veggie Dip
Creamy Ranch Quiche
Nothing says “welcome” to guests like a little bit of comfort food. These mini-quiches are simply handmade using ingredients like Marzetti® Ranch Veggie Dip, spinach, cheese, and dinner yeast rolls, then baked in under 15 minutes for a warm, inviting taste of home.
Cucumber Cups with Creamy Dip Filling
Effortless and tasty, these cucumber cups are perfect as a party appetizer for a crowd—or a light pre-dinner snack for one! Use a melon baller to make a small “cup” inside each cucumber slice and fill with your choice of Marzetti® Ranch Veggie Dip, Marzetti® Southwest Ranch Dip, or Marzetti® Dill Dip.
