We all like to have nibbles out when we have guests around. Often some home-made guacamole or tzatziki dips with rice crackers & vegie sticks, some olives, dolmades, sun/oven dried tomatoes & a variety of cheeses, with a scattering of nuts. Why not try these home-made varieties that all your guests are sure to love!
