The holiday season is gearing up and that means many people will be planning their holiday parties. If you plan to have a lot of guests, but you don’t have a large enough table to seat everyone, choosing a menu that solely features appetizers is a great idea. Even if you do have room at your tables, an appetizers-only holiday party means you don’t have to worry about tying up your oven for a few hours cooking a main dish. If this is a family get together, you can even ask your family members to each bring an appetizer so that the labour is shared. Here are some of the best holiday appetizers for your Christmas party.

Avocado Feta Dip

A Christmas holiday party has to feature a good dip and this one is not only festive looking with its red and green ingredients, but healthy and gluten-free. Just pair it with crackers and you’re good to go. If you want a vegan version, just omit the feta cheese.

Roasted Cabbage with Walnuts, Parmesan and Balsamic

Your vegetarian guests will love this roasted cabbage appetizer. If you are not a fan of cabbage, try eating it roasted as roasting brings out a whole new flavour. And the side benefit is cabbage is great for your skin and includes a host of antioxidants. Walnuts add a crunchy texture to this appetizer while Balsamic adds a sophisticated flavour profile.

  1. Man it is so early and I am. so hungry already. I am trying to do the intermittent fasting but I am having a hard time, especially after seeing these yummy appetizer ideas. I especially love the Avocado Feat Dip…. looks divine 🙂

  2. Oh My Goodness!!! That avocado shrimp looks amazing!!! It reminds me of a dish I had while visiting Wilmington a couple of months ago. I will definitely be adding this to my Christmas brunch. And the wrapped asparagus looks just as tasty. I love asparagus and this seems to be a nice twist to it!
