Holiday Potluck

We had a holiday potluck at work today, which is pretty impressive considering we have 200 - 250 people in our building. There was so much food! My personal favorites were the Mexican dip (I could live off of this stuff), Chicken Marsala, and crab dip (minus the shells in the mix - yuck). I made Greek Orzo Salad which I'd never made before, but it was convenient for a potluck (no heating) and pleasantly different than your average pasta salad. It was really good! And it was super easy to make (after all, it is a salad), except for the de-seeding of the cucumbers and tomatoes... specifically, the tomatoes. Maybe there's an easier way to do it than how I went about it, but I must say that removing the seeds made the salad more hearty and substantial, and less watery. Absolutely yummy.

How did you do it? The easiest way to de-seed a tomato is just to cut off the top of it and hold it over the sink and squeeze gently to get most of the juice and seeds out. If you're picky, you can run your finger in there to get the remnants out.

Hope you have fun back home!
