Entertaining Sides - Smoked Salmon Spread, Sweet Onion Kielbasa and Hot Artichoke Dip

Total Time - 10, 20 and 45 minutes (in order) / Makes 12 (each recipe) Servings

Cooking Sequence

These appetizers work well together or individually. To create a full buffet for a party, use all three recipes, including the serving suggestions. The salmon spread can be made early in the day. On the day of your party, pick up a sandwich platter from the Publix Deli along with a meat and cheese platter. Add a platter of fresh fruit and one of fresh vegetables. Complete your buffet with one or more Publix Bakery dessert platters and a holiday centerpiece from the Floral department. Then spend about an hour preparing the hot recipes. While the artichoke dip bakes, you will have time to take care of those last minute details.
