Chef “Lisa The Domestic Diva” is getting us ready for the holidays. She has a list of quick, easy and delicious appetizers you can make at home.
For the appetizers and recipes, watch the video above and see below:
1 English Cucumber washed
½ Cup Sour Cream, drained
¼ pound Smoked Salmon, cut thinly
Bunch Fresh Dill
Using a fork with slight pressure, score the cucumber lengthwise to form cuts around the entire cucumber. Slice into rounds making 18 pieces.
Place a small amount of sour cream in the middle of each slice and top with a small slice of salmon. Garnish with a dill frond.
12 small Cocktail Tomatoes
1 package Boursin cheese, room temperature.
Cut the top off the tomatoes and using a small Mellon scoop, remove the seeds.
In a small bowl, soften the cheese with a fork and place in a pastry bag, fitted with a tip.
Pipe the cheese into each tomato.

¼ pound goat cheese
1 small jar Fig Jam
Remove the larger, outer leaves of the endive, wash and pat dry with paper towel.
In a small bowl, soften the cheese with a fork.
