Composed Appetizer Platter

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Top Review by Manda

I took this to a BBQ, and it was a total hit!! Very different from your usual veggie and dip platter (BOOORING!!). The only thing I might do differently next time is to add green pepper strips and try using small pearl onions instead of the sliced. I will definitely be making this again, though. Thank you, whomever you may be:) ~Manda
