Dressing up ready-made items makes this reception's menu easy to make.
Creamy cheese provides a pleasant contrast to the crunch of tender little vegetables. Because the vegetables are small, you'll want to pipe the cheese filling rather than spooning it into them.
Arrange salmon and the trimmings on your prettiest platter and invite guests to build their own canapes.
To slice focaccia horizontally, use a long, thin serrated knife. Set the bread on a cutting board. Hold your hand flat and gently pressing the top of the bread while carefully slicing the bread in half.
Fresh mozzarella is usually shaped into balls and packaged in whey or water. Its soft texture and mild, sweet flavor make it an ideal cheese for marinating.
To allow for easy rolling of the sandwiches, cut up the salad using a pastry blender.
Select white or clear poppy seed dressing to show off the fresh colors of the salad.
The bottom two layers serve 100 to 130 guests.
