I was looking for an easy quick appetizer for ladies nite out at a friends house. We were having a Julia Child's recipe and watching the movie Julie & Julia. So I new it needed to be pretty and appetizing! This recipe did that. I can't eat cucumbers so used my red and green bells from my summer garden in the salsa instead. It was a neat idea that all the ladies loved. Thanks!
I've had this recipe from Epicurious for a while. I love these as a quick and impressive-looking appetizer. I usually bake the wonton shells earlier in the day and prepare the salsa, but then fill them right before guests arrive so the bottoms of the wontons don't get soggy. I skip the cilantro and use parsley instead.
Yum. I am making these for a barbecue tonight, mostly because I bought a package of 60 wontons and have no idea what to do with them. The shells bake up nice and crispy and are a nice contrast to the mango salsa. I did add a bit of sugar (a spoonful or so) to the salsa and some salt to taste.
