Looking for a quick and easy appetizer to help ring in the new year?! Even though most of us are staying home this year, it’s still fun to put together a few fun appetizers and a nice dinner to help us celebrate the start of a new year.
One of my favorite simple no-cook appetizers is antipasto skewers with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, artichokes, kalamata olives and fresh basil. This version is brushed with a simple vinaigrette dressing to give it a little extra somethin-somethin.
And not only do these mini skewers taste absolutely delicious, but they pack a punch of nutrition as well with some heart-healthy fats and fiber.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for 2021!Print
