Holiday Appetizers

This year, I’ve decided to make it less stressful, and get over having to make appetizers from scratch.  The simplest things can be spectacular looking and delicious.  Choose great products , and a gorgeous serving platter/dish, and voilà, you’re golden.

We have really good lettuce in the greenhouse, so I used it, but if I hadn’t, I would have used butter lettuce.  Then, I got some fabulous cold smoked salmon, and an incredible chunk of cranberry Stilton cheese (both from Sam’s).  To bring it all together, I served it on a gorgeous piece from Owl Creek Ceramics – amazing and impressive.  And a glass of proseco with a splash of cranberry juice made it even better!

So, this holiday season, give yourself a break.  Get a wedge of great cheese (or cube it), some nuts, cut up veggies, cubed ham or summer sausage, olives, baby pickles – all the best products you love, and can afford, and make them look scrumptious.
