Prego! Bon Appetito!

Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese and Dill Posted by Picasa

Remember my Aglio Olio? You can pimp it up with a lil finger food or antipasti before the primo which is your first course of normally soup or pasta. Or like me, I'd serve everything on a plate, antipasti, contorno (side dish), primo, secondo (meat/fish) together. Less plates to wash. The Italians will curse me to gourmet hell! Don't you go serving dolce (dessert) on the same plate though.
A good mix of baby spinach, arugala,or wuteva u want to have in your salad
Your favourite vinegar (malt/balsamic)
Olive Oil
Mix the dressing ingredients and chill. Just before constructing your plate, toss you salad.
Salmon Thingamajig
Wheat crispsbread
Spreadable cream cheese
Smoked salmon
Fresh dill
Olive Oil
Spread cream cheese over your crispbread.
Place a thin layer of smoke salmon.
A few shakes of pepper.
Garnish with sprigs of fresh dill.
Just before serving, drizzle some olive oil on top of your creation for that glossy finish.
A good dessert for this meal would be nice little Italian Strawberry Dessert Crepes on a dressy plate.
