What do you do when guests arrive unexpected? Improvise. It happened to me a week ago, when really good friends of ours came over for a spontaneous visit. The fridge was almost totally empty- a few ripe tomatoes, half a log of goat cheese (which turned into a spicy Shakshuka-recipe in a post to follow), and a head of lettuce, because I always have fresh lettuce in the fridge.
When I looked for nuts to add to a salad in my pantry I found only a bag of Japanese Rice Cracker Snacks-known in Israel as Munchies. So I threw in a handful of the Munchies into a bowl of lettuce and hoped for the best. The munchies remained crunchy even after they were sitting in dressing, and the salad was crowned as the star of the night.
