Lay a few slices of butter lettuce on a piece of toasted rye bread with mayo and top with sliced hard boiled egg, cold baby shrimp, and a lemon wedge for squeezing.
Smear some good quality, sweet, spicy Swedish mustard on a piece of rye and top with salami and thinly sliced cucumber. Cracked black pepper on top is optional but likely encouraged.
Smoked Salmon, cucumber, dill and a squeeze of lemon makes a simple yet well-received gesture.
Roast beef with roasted onions, cucumber, and a remoulade sauce (mayo, grainy mustard, finely chopped gherkins).
So shimmy a few of these onto your World Cup Smorgasbord spread. And perhaps have a few South African wines on hand to pour? The Man Vintners Chenin Blanc is a personal favorite of mine and an absolute no-brainer at around $9 a bottle.
SKOL! (which coincidentally rhymes with GOAL! which in turn equates my level of wit and humor to that of a 10 year old boy)
