Deep Fried pretzel bites with horseradish honey mustard (Germany)

Fried peperoni chips with marinara dipping sauce (Italy)

Greek Salad (uhhh Greece)

Beef Swarma with choice of Tahini sauce and Tzatziki sauce (Israel/Middle Eastern)

Hawaiin Potato Salad

Cheese platter: Sage cheese, Port wine cheese, Cream cheese and cheddar ball, Vegetable medly spread (American)

Olive and assortive veggie Platter

Candied walnuts

and about 8 different kinds of wine from a winery we went to this weekend


It was a very nice a relaxing party and everything tasted VERY Yummy!!

It did hit the spot and everyone seemed to really enjoy everything esp. the beef swarma, I sliced chuck roast for it and it came out very tender...

The Hawaiin Potato salad is one I always loved at a Hawaiin take out in San Diego, I liked it because it had macaroni as well in it, which was very different from what I grew up with!
Heres the recipe


Hawaiian Potato Salad
4-5 large potatoes
1 1/2 cups shell macaroni-dry
1-2 carrots diced small
2 celery stalks-diced small
2-3 pickles to taste-chopped
1 cup peas (I left them out)
2 stalks green onion-chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Dressing

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup Zesty Italian dressing
2 T. pickle juice (or less)

Boil potatoes until tender. Cool and cut into cubes. Cook macaroni per package directions. Toss with remaining ingredients. Add dressing.

*Note* I reccomend making extra dressing because it really gets soaked up!!
