Relish Tray-Holiday Appetizer Platter
The Relish Tray Is Easy
Given the choice I prefer to be a guest with gifts in hand for the Holiday Fest. For seasoned veterans of the holiday tableau~dinner may be a breeze, but for us mere mortals the stress involved can be moderate to extreme. That's why being the guest is ideal. You simply show up...perhaps with your relish tray and a hostess gift. It is considered polite to offer a helping hand to the harried hostess (or not.) Many a cook prefer you steer clear of the kitchen. I shall leave it up to you to properly gauge the situation.
Preparing your relish tray is easy! I like easy. It is simply a matter of a graceful arrangement. Together we will explore some lovely dishware that you can artfully arrange your edibles. Some yummy dips and tasty treats to add and finally a clever hostess gift.

Thoughtful & Graceful Arrangement Is Key
Use any assortment of your favorite vegetables, deli meats and cheeses! The key to a fabulous relish tray is in the thoughtful and graceful arrangement. Making up a relish tray is about as simple as can be. Wash and peel your chosen vegetables. You will want to cut your veggies into convenient lengths-approx. 4 inches or less and quarter them (or slice into julienne, if that's your taste). Cut the radishes as for radish roses, if you like, and put all the vegetables into ice water for at least 10 minutes to crisp them before serving. I advise putting your pickles, pepper rings, & olives on one serving plate, and then all the fresh veggies on a seperate platter with dip in the center.

The exact makeup of the relish tray is a matter of family tradition, like everything else at the Holiday meal. It is always nice to add a couple of bowls of nuts and some fresh fruit as well. Homemade candy (or store bought) is a nice addition.
These Dips Looked So Good- I had to share...
1/2 lb. cooked minced shrimp
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup cocktail sauce (or mix ketchup and horseradish to taste)
optional -- dashes of worcestershire, hot sauce, Old Bay Seasoning
Simply blend together
All you have to do is blend. Couldn't be easier and it is ALWAYS the hit of the party.
Hot Crab Spread
1 lb. good crab meat, picked over for shells
8 oz. very soft cream cheese
3 Tbsp. mayonaise
1 Tbsp. lemon juice

Gently mix all this together, place into a wide casserole dish. Top with an additional cup of shredded
cheddar cheese. Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes or until bubbly.
