Polo Match and Canapes Recipes

Canapes Recipes:

Cheese Canapes:
Big hunk of Maytag Blue Cheese
8 green grapes cut in half
15 assorted crackers
Chopped assorted nuts (I did almonds, cashews and macademion nuts)
 Take your crackers and top with a tablespoon of blue cheese, add half of a grape, nuts and drizzle with honey. Add to a platter with dried fruits, more grapes and nuts.
Mini Crab Cakes

Grape tomatoes
 Quartered small mozzeralla balls
Fresh basil
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
For the Pesto: 2 cups of fresh basil 1/4 cup pinoli nuts 1 tbs water 3/4 cup olive oil salt and pepper pepper flakes 2 garlic cloves
Blend together all of the pesto ingredients except the olive oil, add that in while blending so it emulsifies. Blend until it is mixed together but still a little chunky. Stick a grape fruit knife in the stem side of the grape tomatoes, go around in a circle until the top comes off. Take out some of the inside add the pesto and top with the cheese. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. 
1 package of wild smoked salmon
1 tbs. torn dill
1 tbs. minced parsely
1 tbs. snipped chives
zest of one lemon
2 wide cucumbers cut into thick sturdy silces try not to use the ends that way the slices are similar in size
9 quatered grape tomatoes
creme fraiche
3 tbs. drained capers
lemon wedges for serving
salt and pepper
Take your cucumber slices and flake some salamon in the middle of it. Flake enough so that it is stacked up in the middle but not to much so that you will have enough for the rest. Add a quarter of the grape tomatoe, capers and a dollop of creme fraiche. Top them all off with lemon zest, salt, pepper, parsely, dill, more capers and chives. Serve with lemon wedges.  

So with tailgating in the air the polo match begins....
