Here’s another recipe to whet your appetite, fresh from the Prologue (Appetizers, Salads, Soups):

Easy Vegetable Squares

My daughter came upon this recipe, and these appies have become a favorite at our family parties, showers and get-togethers. They can be made ahead of time, and make a nice contrast to heated appetizers, since they’re served at room temperature.


2 pkgs of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

1 (8oz.) pkg. of cream cheese

1/3 cup of mayo

1 tsp. dill

1 tsp. of powdered salad dressing mix (Ranch, Italian or your favorite kind)

1 cup finely chopped carrots

1 cup finely chopped broccoli

1 cup finely chopped cauliflower

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (or a blend of cheeses)


Open Pillsbury Crescent Roll packages and roll onto cookie sheet so that they are one large rectangular piece. Pinch all the “seams” of the triangles together so that the corners don’t curl up when baking.

Bake according to directions. Cool and set aside.  Meanwhile, with electric mixer, blend cream cheese, dill, mayo and salad dressing mix. Spread onto cooled crust. Top with vegetables and then sprinkle on cheese. Cut into squares using pizza cutter. Enjoy!

    These look yummy! I’m bummed I have to go to work; I’d rather stay and make these for lunch. ~checks calendar~

    Is it bad I’m making cooking dates with myself? lol

      Sounds like me … no time to do any baking, even though I’m salivating over these recipes!
