Going beyond the standard chips & dips for an upcoming gathering such as New Year’s Eve is easier than you think! Make a beautiful dish of olives, cheeses, roasted pepper slices, meat slices and gourmet crackers instead. A festive platter, delicious finger foods and a handful of cocktail napkins and you’re all set! It makes an attractive presentation, which is certainly yummy!
Secondly, if you’re transporting the appetizer to a party, you’ll just need to fill your bag with a jar or two of olives & peppers, a box of sliced meat, sliced cheese, a platter and a box of crackers and you’re set! No more dip leaking out the side or something that needs to be heated up or requires extensive cleaning! Keep the chips and dip for the backyard parties and bring out the yummy meats, cheeses and olives instead!
Next time you’re at your grocery store take a look to see what you find. Olive bars, extensive gourmet packaged meat slices, pepperoni slice and delicious cheeses can be easily found these days.
Do you have a favorite, non-chip & dip type appetizer?
