New a new appetizer for your holiday entertaining? This spicy apple and shrimp "martini" is a favorite in our house. It looks so fancy when served in pretty glassware!

Madigan made… a simple and spicy shrimp appetizer. Spicy Apple and Shrimp “Martini”. Food always looks more festive in martini glasses, doesn't it? I made this shrimp salad frequently this past summer. It was the perfect dish on a warm day and a light dinner for Tim and myself.

Are you a Downton Abbey fan? I am!
I had the chance to see the costumes from the show this past summer and I LOVED the experience. If you live in the #Philadelphia tri-state area, I highly recommend the exhibit at Winterthur! (It is open through early January)
