Ajvar from Macedonia makes great sandwiches/dip

One of the advantages of having children living all over the world is being introduced to new and different foods.  Ajvar, a pâté of roasted eggplant and sweet peppers, is one of my favorite.  The brand I use, Vava, is imported from Macedonia.  Following is my version of pimento cheese.

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup Ajvar (can use 1/2 cup of mild and 1/2 cup hot)

1 cup mayonnaise

Dash of cayenne , if desired

Great as a grilled cheese sandwich.  Use as a dip with crackers or scooping chips.  Why not try this with other cheeses?

The Balkan “Sendvick”

This is one of “Miss Martha’s favorites.”

Take a flour tortilla, spread softened cream cheese all over it, top that with Ajvar and then guacamole.  Add sliced turkey, greens and olives.  (plus anything else you’d like such as tomato slices, onion slices, cheese, other meats-just not ham!)  Roll up the tortilla, secure with a toothpick and cut in half.
