Nutty Napoleons – 50 Finger Foods with Attitude

These bite-sized sandwiches are ambrosia for cheese and nut lovers. And the presentation is impressive for such a simple-to-prepare hors d’oeuvre. If you reduce the recipe, do not use a food processor; make the cheese mixture by hand. Chop extra chives and sprinkle them on to a plate as a colorful backdrop for the napoleons.

Figs in a blanket

This simple yet complex combination of flavors is unbeatable if the figs are perfect. They must be ripe, but not too soft. Try using green as well as purple figs for variety if they are available.

Caprese Skewers

The lineup of red tomato, white mozzarella, and green basil makes these skewers an optical treat. Savor this hors d’oeuvre during the summer when tomatoes are at their peak. Try alternating the red cherry tomatoes with yellow pear tomatoes if they are available.
