You can make the grape salsa ahead of time, ready and waiting to top these tiny cups of nuts and cheese.
These chicken salad bites are a fusion of Thai flavours – peanut, lime and a bit of heat from chili sauce. You can double the chicken salad recipe and use to fill party sandwiches.
Make the cheese balls ahead of time, then serve as is with toothpicks. Or pop them into tart shells to bake and serve hot or slightly warm.
With puff pastry on hand, it won't take long to produce these stylish canapes.
Not only are these roll-ups quick hors d'oeuvres but they also make tantalizing lunch fare for kids and adults alike.
Tubes of ready-made polenta are available in the deli section of most supermarkets. Just cut, cook and top with this delicious relish for a seduction of salty and crispy in every bite.
Smoked trout, with the skin still on, retains moistness and has a mild sweet flavour and flaky texture. If you can't find it, smoked salmon or smoked mackerel is just as delicious.
If time is short, you can make the topping well ahead and even spread onto the Brie up to a day ahead. The marriage of rich melting cheese with sweet yet tangy soft onions is unforgettable. Serve with lavash or toasted baguette slices.
