A Festive, Healthy Holiday Party
Celebrate the season with holiday fare that will make your guests feel good, not stuffed. These bites are perfect for passing around a cocktail party and are so enticing, revelers won't even realize they're on the lighter side.
Fresh Ricotta Crostini: Wow your guests with this made-from-scratch fresh ricotta.
Smoky Spiced Pepitas: Smoked paprika gives these toasted pumpkin seeds just the right earthy note.
Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip: Sweet-tart pomegranate molasses and rich walnuts make this a wonderfully flavorful dip.
Stuffed Mushrooms: Giada De Laurentiis' recipe for stuffed mushrooms calls for heart-healthy olive oil, rather than butter.
Prosciutto Rolls with Asparagus and Arugula: This is a great way to get greens on the table at your holiday party in slightly more sneaky fashion. Or try the perennial favorite: Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs.
Shrimp Cocktail: You can't go wrong with shrimp cocktail; the simple, classic app is always a hit.
