On the Apple Salad: You may need to whisk again before drizzling over the salad to make sure the oils and vinegars are well combined. They will separate if left alone too long.
On the CheeseBoard: They're truly a work of art so take your time when assembling it—it takes about 20 mins.
On the Pressed Italian Sandwich: Before assembling, split the bread in half and scoop out the inside of both the top and bottom, leaving a 1/2-inch thick shell.
On the Key Lime Pie Cheesecakes in Jars: Spoon 2 tablespoons of the crust into each of the 6 half pint jars and gently press into the bottom—then add the filling.
