I love making appetizers! Especially when I invite a lot of people over. It is also very quick to make when I get noticed that someone will come over and don’t have enough time to get a dinner menu ready! These Appetizers Recipes, are quick and easy to prepare. What I really love about them is that I can get as creative as I want and mix many different ingredients.
1- Melon Wraps
What you will need to get this appetizer recipe ready; Melon slices, cheddar cheese and ham. This may sound a bit weird but as I mentioned earlier, appetizers recipes are all about creativity, Melon gives a juicy sweetness, the ham gives a salty taste, and cheese is a balance between the two.
Put cheddar cheese on the Melon slice and wrap ham around them.
2- Mini Caprese bites
This One is among many other Appetizers recipes I got to learn from my Grand Mother; as I remember she was receiving guests over almost every week end, and I had to help her getting things ready. I remember the “Appetizers” part was the most exciting! She used to add twists as well to all her recipes which make them very original.
- 1 pt. grape tomatoes, halved
- 10 to 14 fresh mozzarella balls
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 6 sliced fresh basil leaves
Cut the tomatoes in half, and put a piece of cheese in between and place a skewer to hold it together.
Mix oil, salt, pepper and vinegar and drizzle it over the skewers and sprinkle with basil.
