Having a party? Don’t sweat it with these easy, fast appetizers.
I used to stress every single part of every party meal I made. These days though, I strive for zen-ness when I am hosting. And one way I achieve that is by using some super easy appetizers to kick things off.
Here are a few of my favorites:Pesto Hummus and Veggie Dippers
– The trick to making this super fast? Pick up precut veggies at your grocery store. It will take you about 5 minutes to whip up the fabulous Pesto Hummus and arrange the veggies on a platter. Easy as can be.Tomato Mozzarella Platter
– This is one of those appetizers that never lasts because people love it so much. Whip it up in just five minutes (and see it disappear even faster!).Black Bean Dip with Tortillas
– Another super easy, fast and flavorful idea: this salsa-esque dip is ready in five minutes and serves a big crowd.
Guac Bites – These are super easy. Just lay out tortilla chips. Top each one with a dollop of guacamole and then a sliced olive. Serve (in less than 3 minutes!).
Cheese Plate with Crackers – As ridiculously simple as it sounds, a cheese plate is a fab appetizer with a party pick out 4-5 great and different cheeses with a selection of crackers. Serve with a cheese knife.
