Project Description

Any party would be proud to display these beautiful salmon rounds.  They are quick and easy to assemble and look amazing! When I am cooking a big dinner or having a party with lots of moving parts,  I always try and plan an appetizer that I can throw together in minutes.  If I am busy cooking a meal for guests I don’t need to make the appetizer complicated.  This you can have prepped ahead of time and throw together in minutes just before your guests arrive.

If you are not a lover of salmon you could certainly change it up with something else like a piece of parma ham or salami. It really is about the different colors and textures that make this sweet little appetizer so appealing!
