"My boyfriend's mother gave me the idea for this classy appetizer that I serve for Sunday brunch and special occasions like New Year's Eve," says Tristin Crenshaw, Tucson, Arizona. "The textures are flavors of the dill, cream cheese and smoked salmon are scrumptious together." Spread on cocktail rye bread, it's sure to be the toast of your buffet!"
If you're bored with the same old appetizers, give this one a try. I serve the little salmon bundles on skewers for easy dipping. Standing them in a small vase filled with table salt creates a festive presentation. —Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas
Leona Schmidt's colorful pea pods are a welcome treat at luncheons and family gatherings. "They're simple to make—I just fill a plastic bag with the smoked salmon filling, snip off a corner and pipe it into the pods," says the Madras, Oregon cook.
These individual pizzas made from toasted pita breads are a tasty way to finish up extra salmon in this swift snack sent in by Laura Davis from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Seafood lovers are sure to request it time and again.
Even though I've been making these rich roll-ups for more than 30 years, they're always the first appetizers to disappear at parties. The recipe comes from my grandmother.—Radelle Knappenberger, Oviedo, Florida
