35 Healthy Holiday Appetizers

If I could describe my perfect meal, it would be a feast made up entirely of appetizers.

A little bite of this, a little bite of that = my dream dinner.

With many holiday parties on the horizon, I’ve rounded up a collection of 35 Healthy Appetizer Recipes that not only taste great, but don’t leave you feeling like you need to unbutton those pants.
