Refreshing Cold Plate for Summer

Summer cold plate. We'd do something like this at home when I was younger during the hot summer months. This version: Meat and cheese on Ritz crackers, pine nut hummus with bagel chips, cottage cheese, cole slaw, a fresh purple plum, and a homemade jello cup of cherry jello with sliced bananas and mini marshmallows. All easy, cool and refreshing. :)

When Mom made this kind of plate, she'd start with a can of salmon (as is) divided among the plates, then she'd add such things as sliced tomatoes, cottage cheese, peaches, etc.

  1. Mmmmm! I think I'd like that even in the wintertime!
    My mom used to put bananas in Jell-O. I'll have to remember that and make some soon!
