Healthy New Year’s Appetizer Ideas

Healthy New Year’s Appetizer Ideas

If you’re throwing a New Year’s Eve party, or just planning a quiet evening at home with a few friends or your family, you’re going to want some appetizers that won’t set you back in the health department like the standard chips and dips will. Chopped up veggies are always a good alternative, but they’re not exactly original. Instead, try some of these tasty and tantalizing ideas:

Spiced Smoky Almonds
Fig and Kalamata Olive Tapenade
Basil Lime Pumpkin Seed Pesto
Quinoa “Caviar”
Classic Tomato Mozzarella Stacks
Spicy Tortilla Chips and Mock Guac

And there’s lots more ideas here.
