    These were the hit of our appetizer tray for Easter dinner. I served them with shrimp cocktail. I wasn’t sure what golden balsamic vinegar was so used the light balsamic dressing that I already had opened and it worked very well. Because I had only 4 people I used only 1 pkg shells, One question I have is that you do not tell me in the nutrifacts what a serving size is other than 14 grams. You can’t expect very many people to think in metric measurements. Usually appetizers are about 3 per serving so I wasn’t sure if a serving was 1 shell or more than that. Next time around I am going to make the Smoked Salmon mini shells. Love the shells!!
