Prepare one bagel half in each color of the Olympic rings and arrange on a platter. Put out halved bagels, cream cheese (plain and scallion) and bowls of toppings so guests can assemble their own.
Blue: Slice small blue potatoes 1/4 inch thick. Toss with olive oil, season with salt and roast at 400 degrees F until tender, about 20 minutes. Spread bagels with cream cheese; top with the potatoes.
Black: Spread bagels with cream cheese; top with sliced pitted black olives.
Red: Spread bagels with cream cheese; top with smoked salmon and sliced plum tomatoes. Drizzle with lemon juice.
Yellow: Spread bagels with cream cheese; top with sliced yellow grape or cherry tomatoes; season with salt.
Green: Mash 1 avocado with the juice of 1 lemon; season with salt and pepper. Spread on bagels; top with sliced Persian cucumbers and season with more salt and pepper.
