Vintage 1950s Food

The 1950s were all about having hor's d' oeuvres or what my family called snacks: before and after a meal. When we came home from school in New York, my mother always has something interesting for the 3:00 snack. This was a wonderful late school year snack when it was getting to be summer and throughout summer.

Gazpacho Snack

1/3 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 tbsp. chopped onion
2 tbsp. plain yogurt
2 tsp. wine vinegar
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
9 cherry tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
36 Low Salt Ritz Crackers

In a small bowl, stir together cucumber, green pepper, onion, yogurt, vinegar, garlic powder, and red pepper until blended. Place a tomato slice on each Ritz cracker. Top with 1/2 teaspoon vegetable mixture. Serve immediately.
Makes 3 doz. appetizers
