  • For easy shaving us a mandolin, food processor, or sharp knife.
  • Pomegranate arils make a beautiful addition or substitution for the dried cranberries but they are only available certain times of year. They are usually available October thru January.
  • Feel frees to substitute walnuts, pistachios, or almonds for the pecans. They are equally as delicious.
  • Use freshly grated Parmesan Cheese. It is well worth the effort and the cost.
  • Experiment with different cheeses like Asiago, Romano, or even Bleu Cheese.
