How to Make Healthy Appetizers

 

Appetizers are often a great way to start a meal and can also be a good way to get your guests started eating. However, it’s important that you don’t make the mistake of thinking that all appetizers are healthy. There are many ways to prepare appetizers that are not healthy and some that are very unhealthy. Here are some examples of healthy appetizers:

* Hummus – This dip is made from chickpeas, tahini (sesame seed paste), lemon juice, olive oil and spices. It’s a great dip for veggies or as a spread for crackers. It’s also a great dip for pita bread or tortilla chips.

* Guacamole – This dip is made with avocados, cilantro, lime juice, onion and spices. It’s also great served with tortilla chips or pita bread.

* Salsa – This salsa is made with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. It’s also great served over tortilla chips or pita.

* Dips – These dips are usually made with sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese or yogurt. They’re also great served with tortilla or pita bread.
Dips like these can be very filling and also make a great snack. If you’re looking for something light, try a fruit salad instead. Fruit salads are easy to make and usually consist of just fruits and yogurt.

Fruit Salad

Fruits make an excellent addition to any fruit salad. Some fruits to add include strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, mangoes, oranges, bananas, kiwi, pineapple, apples, peaches, plums, grapes, apricots, and papayas.

You can also add yogurt or other dairy products to the mix such as cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, or even feta cheese. You can also add nuts such as almonds or walnuts. Nuts can be added to the mix raw or roasted.

When choosing fruits to add to your fruit salad, choose those that are in season. Fruits that are in season will generally be at their best quality and taste better.

Other ingredients that you can add to your fruit salad are dried fruits such as raisins, currants, cranberries, or cherries. You can also add chocolate pieces, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, or chocolate shavings.

Fruit salad is a great choice when preparing a healthy appetizer because it’s light and filling. It’s also easy to prepare and can be served at room temperature. Fruit salad is also a great choice for serving at a party because it can be easily prepared ahead of time and is always a crowd pleaser.
