Nothing makes my eyes light up at a party like seeing a big spread of appetizers. My absolute favorite kind? The ones that you get to assemble yourself. If your group of friends and family is anything like mine, everybody has different tastes.

Some people don’t like onions, others can’t get enough. Somebody hates tomatoes, whereas I’m like give me all the tomatoesI think we can all agree that lots of options never hurt anybody.

Serve a Smoked Salmon Platter for brunch or a party!

This Smoked Salmon Platter wants to be a part of your next brunch buffet or New Year’s Eve celebration. Almost everything you see here just needed a quick slice or chop before placing on the board.

The only things that even required any stirring were the special touches I added to the spreads – I stirred some chives into the cream cheese, and some chopped red onion into the sour cream.

Would you believe that I put this huge smoked salmon crostini spread together in less than 15 minutes? So simple yet so stunning, right?

Notes

Home Chef Tip: Is the flavor of raw red onions too strong for you? Soak chopped onion in ice water for 5 minutes, then drain and serve. The cold water will temper the "bite" of the onion.
