The new year is a time to start fresh. After 2020, we all deserve some of the most exquisite, fresh appetizers to ring in 2021.
Let’s dive right in to the top three appetizers necessary for your socially distanced New Year’s Eve celebrations!
With all of the challenges of the past year, one of the biggest has been adjusting to safety precautions. A friend and family favorite appetizer are the classic charcuterie boards. Thankfully, we didn’t have to give up this finger food favorite due to the coronavirus. With some reinventing, the charcuterie “covid cones” were born. All the staples from a charcuterie board: cheese, meat, crackers, vegetables and sweets placed together in paper cone. A cute, yet safe hand-held appetizer to carry with you throughout the house.
Nothing says celebration and sophistication like shrimp cocktail. This traditional appetizer is made even more decadent with a homemade sauce; we suggest mango salsa, of course. Martini glasses, plastic or glass, make an elegant display for this delicious dish. A simple yet classy individual appetizer.
There is not much better than the freshness of caprese salad. Start the new year with a breath of fresh air as you enjoy the crisp heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves drizzled with a balsamic reduction, finished with a dash of salt and pepper. To make this fresh dish even more accessible to family and friends, try creating caprese salad skewers. Simply grab a small skewer, substitute cherry tomatoes or use small bites of the heirloom tomatoes, then add the rest of your ingredients. Skewers help for an easily distanced appetizer!
Whether you’re celebrating with a small group of friends, family, or just treating yourself, these socially distanced appetizers are guaranteed to ring in 2021 with style.
