Here are a couple of appetizers I made for a New Years Eve party, but obviously you can make them for anything.  They are both super quick and easy.



This recipe was taken from Family Circle Fabulous Party Pieces.  Now I would love to give you a link to this book so you can purchase it, but it seems like it's extremely difficult to come by.  I've had my copy for about 12 years when I worked for the distributor. 


  • 5-6 zucchini
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs parsley, chopped
  • 4 slices salami, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese

To make:

Slice each zucchini lengthways down the center, then cut each half across the middle … this will make 4 zucchini boats.

Using a small spoon scoop some of the center out of each boat

Simmer zucchini for 3 minutes, drain and run under cold water.  Pat dry.

Combine all other ingredients in a bowl.  Spoon the filling into the zucchini boats. 

Grill until the cheese has melted.  Serve immediately.
