Party Menu -- Early Summer Appy Party

Summer means get-togethers large and small. This is the menu for an appetizer buffet that a friend recently hosted. I prepared all of the food for her open-house-style party. There were fresh veggies for the moz dip and fresh fruit skewers for the fruit dip. Blue and yellow corn chips were ladled with the salsas and avocado dip. Wheat Thins were spread with the cheese ring. I also prepared a couple of recipes that aren't posted on Zaar. I will add those later.

From the Cooking Fresh 2005 issue of The Best of Fine Cooking. It states that this little bite, with its contrasting flavors and textures (smooth, salty prosciutto versus crisp peppery greens) will surely stimulate your appetite. If the prosciutto is very long, cut each piece in half crosswise first. I have subbed a baby green mix for the mesclun or arugula due to availability.

This recipe was originally submitted by Mean Chef (IHHDRO). I adopted it after he left the site. My comments in my original review stated, "Although I didn't find this recipe here, I have made this salsa for several years. Due to variations of ingredients on hand, I sometimes make changes (and/or additions). However, this is a very good base recipe for fresh salsa. There is no need to change it; but we all like a little variety now and then." I am the designated salsa-maker among my friends, and this recipe never disappoints.

Fancier-than-normal cinnamon toast that may also double as an appetizer. This recipe is from Gourmet Magazine.

Recipe #105627

This is a great change from the usual fruit dip recipes and it is so easy to make with only three simple ingredients. It is a recipe from my niece who got it from a friend who prepares fruit trays for a major grocery store. The preparation time is an estimate of the time it takes to prepare the fruit.

There is not much to say about this recipe. If you love chocolate and strawberries, try it. :)

Recipe #29413

A co-worker of mine gave me this shrimp recipe right off the top of her head when I needed to make appetizers for the holidays. I am unsure as to where she got it. It is extremely easy, fast, delicious, and versatile. It can be used as an appetizer or a main dish.

Recipe #109474

This recipe comes from the Party Skewers section of The New Polish Cuisine by Chef Michael J. Baruch. I enjoy the ingredients for this recipe by themselves and together they will be even better.

A co-worker gave me this recipe at a staff birthday party. It has a unique taste and is extremely versatile. It will last for several days refrigerated.

Recipe #18258

This recipe makes a lovely appetizer when arranged on a serving platter and surrounded with fresh flowers. It's from the cookbook "Culinary Masterpieces From the Birmingham Museum of Art".

Recipe #119501

This dip is one that I am always told to bring to a gathering. We have found that we like to use half mozzarella and half colby cheese or I add some sharp cheddar for a change of pace. It is REALLY good as a spread on a ham sandwich as well. (This is the original recipe I was given, I have altered some of the ingredient amounts though for more flavor.)

Recipe #4146

It's the holiday season and time for Holiday gatherings. This is a quick - simple appetizer to put together and is a real crowd pleaser with holiday gatherings.

Recipe #107549

Guests will be surprised to find that these appetizers, studded with nuts and bejeweled with pepper jelly are not to be saved for dessert. This is one cookie recipe that should certainly be paired with cocktails.

Recipe #103957

Adapted from a recipe at kraftfoods. It's very easy, and low fat too!

Recipe #94141

I cant' remember where I got this, but these are great little appetizers. Pepperidge Farm bread works well as it is square. I have also omitted the garlic powder and parsley and use dry ranch seasoning mix instead.

Recipe #119457

Cute little stuffed puff pastry rounds. These are great for summer parties, showers, etc. and you gotta love how easy puff pastry is. Vary the herbs to suit the occasion.

A very impressive cold appetizer. The color of the oranges and spinach really brighten up a buffet table. My guests loved this appetizer and devoured them all. Adapted slightly from a Creme de Colorado cookbook.

I serve this salad on lettuce leaves, but also love it between grainy bread for sandwiches. This is so easy, that I don't always admit the recipe. Sorry, but some people just don't need to know!

Recipe #75701

This is so quick and easy. People can't stop eating them.
