So after a roast lunch I will be doing a buffet. What else could I add to this list that doesn’t involve cooking or fuss?

Crackers and cheese, grapes, veg sticks, hummus and dips, bread sticks, smoked salmon, crisps, nuts and olives. Anything else I’m missing?

Cold cuts from the roast? Pickles & chutneys?

Salads - green, coleslaw, potato etc

Don’t really want to have to faff with potato... will have a load of veg with the roast (I do at least 3 types plus potatoes) would I still need a salad?

I forgot I had meats, salami, pastrami!

I don’t eat chutney, what sort is good? What do you eat it with, meat?

We will be having roast chicken so won’t have that for the buffet..

Green salad, baguette, dates

You have chutney with cheese - something like caramelised red onion would be good

I would do blinis and cream cheese mixed with horseradish to go with the salmon. Always a big hit here!

Cheese and pineapple on sticks surely?!

Cheese & pineapple on sticks is what DH would be looking for, it's his measure of a good buffet grin

Trouble is can’t have too much dairy as some dairy intolerant.... will have goats cheese for them grin

Talk to me about blinis.... I thought that was a drink blush

That chutney sounds good thanks! Didn’t think of dates...

Blinis are little pancakes - you are thinking of Bellini cocktails

Have a look here

FYI goat is still dairy - however some people with a dairy intolerance or who struggle with cow's milk are able to manage to goat (or sheep) dairy as it can be easier to digest

Thanks will look at that link. Yes definitely dairy intolerant not goat. That’s my dad and he can have goats so that’s ok!

I'm not sure pineapple goes very well with goats cheese - maybe cherry tomatoes or dates?

I'd put out the fruit bowl and add 2 of pate, pork pies, sausage rolls, cocktail sausages and some good bread

Leftover pigs in blankets? Green salad & coleslaw, pickles/chutneys & maybe a pork pie.

If you want something green and easy, do pasta and pesto. Chuck in some sweetcorn and you're sorted!

MiniTheMinx Mon 11-Dec-17 17:15:10

Parma ham, quails eggs

midsomermurderess Mon 11-Dec-17 19:49:47

What about things like falafel, pakoras, samosas and various dips hummus etc, stuffed vine leaves.

Runner bean chutney is delicious with both cheese and cold meats
