Greek Spinach Salad in Mini Phyllo Cups

We found these pre-made phyllo cups at the store a few weeks ago, and kept forgetting to use them. They were flavored, in spinach and sundried tomato, perfect for this recipe. Quite tasty, and cute to boot! We only used half the cups… any ideas for what could fill them next?

    Those little phyllo cups are adorable! Can you please share the brand name that they’re sold under? Or the store where you purchased them? I’d love to have them on hand for my next party.

    Aren’t they precious? :) We got them at Kroger, the brand name is called Athens.

    Wow — I use Athens fillo shells all the time, but haven’t seen these flavored ones before! Will definitely have to stock up — I always keep a couple of boxes in the freezer.

    Funny thing is I haven’t seen them since! They were in one of those special end-caps one week so we bought them. Maybe if I actually look I could find them again… :)

    I need to make an appetizer for a work holiday party……these look great! One question…..should these be served warm? Would they be fine served at room temp? My work party is an hour away so I want something I can prepare at home, travel with, and not worry about heating anything up when I get there. Will it work with this recipe?
