OPA! To a Better You

I'm a snacker, and one with a salt tooth at that.  The crunchier, the saltier, the better.  It's been years since I've bought melba toast, mostly because I recall them as bland and good just for babies.  Well, things have changed, and I've been enjoying Old London's Melba Toast and Melba Snacks in soups, with dips, and just for plain snacking.

This weekend, Chris roasted some peppers and eggplants on the grill and I turned them into a fabulous baba ganoush dip which was quite tasty on Old London's Sea Salt Melba Snacks.
I simply took the cooled, grilled vegetables and blended them in a food processor with 2 tbsp tahini (sesame paste), 2 garlic cloves, a tsp of cumin, the juice of one lemon, and olive oil (enough to achieve the desired consistency.  Oh, and salt and pepper to taste.
Really delicious with some cilantro as the garnish.  The roasted eggplant adds smokiness to the dish which complements the crunch and saltiness of the Melba Snacks.

Did you know you can make desserts using Old London Melba Snacks?  This recipe for Chocolate-Pistachio crunch looks amazing.
You can find more recipes on the website too.

Would you love to win a trip to the Greek Isles to celebrate?  Who wouldn't (well, maybe members of the Greek government)?

Old London will send one lucky winner and a guest on an all-expense 8 day/7 night paid trip to the Greek Islands for a first-hand experience of the local culture, food and activities. Say Opa! to a better you by maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and participating in physical activities you love while enjoying the breathtaking views of the Greek Islands!

You can get more information and try your luck by entering the Old London OPA to a Better You Facebook contest. Good luck, and OPA!
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Old London. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.


  1. I love baba ghanoush! Perhaps even more than hummus...

  2. I can honestly say I've never tried NOR have I even heard of baba ghanoush! It looks quite interesting though. LOL

    Thanks for the heads up on the contest as well as the recipe-You know I love my contests ^.^
