Simple Appetizers

Posted on

Entertaining doesn’t have to be a huge drain on your energy or finances. Sometimes the most simple foods are exactly what you need to enjoy togetherness in a relaxed state of mind. Appetizers are a great way to keep the social aspect alive while you put the finished touches on a meal. So, what are some easy appetizer ideas?

A raw vegetable platter with hummus, ranch or French Onion dip is not only nutritious, but a colorful and tasty addition to your gathering. Since most people want to eat healthy food, this appetizer will almost certainly be a winner.

Grocery stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have well-made frozen appetizers that you can serve to guests, knowing that the ingredients are of a high quality. Many of these finger foods like egg rolls, meatballs and spanakopita are stress-free morsels, simply needing reheating in the oven.

Spinach dip is so delicious that it should probably be its own food group. While homemade dip takes the cake, store bought is almost as good. Hollow out a loaf of sourdough and put the spinach dip inside. Then bake the bread on low in the oven until the dip is heated through and the bread is crunchy.

Summer is all about taking a break from the daily grind, and we truly hope that you have time for togetherness this season. Enjoy some of these appetizers with your loved ones!
