Cold hors d'oeurves?
I'm looking for suggestions for party food that can be served cold. Thanks!
Well cold veggies always work for me. Try whole green beans, lightly marinated, with a sweet vinegar and chili mix. Thin sliced raw sweet potato works as a great chip for a dip. Little bowls of cold soba noodles. Cheviche..cold veggie or fruit soups. Lettuce rollups, or better yet, cold vietnamese spring rolls
Assorted cheeses with crackers
Different salsas with corn & blue corn chips
Dips & chips (of course)
Shrimp boiled & served with cocktail or Louie sauce
Crab claws, same as above
Antipasto platter (marinated vegs, cheeses, sliced meats, olives, etc)
Deviled eggs (I like a bit of bleu cheese added)
Gourmet olive selection
For somewhat more substantial fare, I like assorted roll-up slices. Think salad combinations you like, then convert the ingredients into filling for roll-ups. I use a dab of boursin or some kind of spread to help glue it shut, wrap in foil and chill overnight. Cobb Salad, Spinach Salad, Chicken Caesar, Chicken chutney with rice, thin roast beef with romaine, sun dried tomato, and boursin.... let your imagination guide you.
