Perfect Party Food: Appetizers That Dazzle
You might say that appetizers can make a party—little portable bites keep guests from feeling full and sluggish, and their portability means everyone can socialize freely. (Have you ever been trapped by a boring seatmate at a sit-down dinner? A nightmare!) If you’re planning a holiday party, you want party food that will dazzle like the season itself, and we’ve got 10 appetizer recipes designed to impress.
What makes a great holiday party appetizer? Beauty, for one thing—you want your guests to be drawn to the food. Our cheese and olive appetizer tree will do the trick nicely, as will the tropical ham-and-pineapple bites served up on a fresh pineapple. And it might be their looks that initially tantalize, but it’s the flavor that has staying power. Guests also want dramatic combinations, like our Cajun deviled egg shrimp cocktail, or a cheese fondue swirled with pesto. Surprise them with the unexpected, and your friends and family will be talking about your holiday party for days to come.
