Healthy and Delicious Appetizers: Mini Bell Peppers w/ Hummus & Caprese Salad on a Stick
Yummy and healthy appetizers alert! These crowd-pleasing appetizers are perfect for any BBQ or meal that you may be hosting; and the best part – you don’t have to turn on the oven as no baking is required!
Mini Bell Peppers with Hummus
Cut mini bell peppers in half and use a pastry bag and tip (or cut a hole in the corner of a Ziploc bag!) to pipe on your favorite hummus for an easy and beautiful presentation. Make a pan of these ahead of time, cover, and store in the fridge until ready to serve.
Caprese Salad on a Stick
For this easy and fun appetizer, simply take a toothpick and skewer a grape tomato, basil leaf, and small piece of fresh mozzarella for a delicious bite size Caprese salad! Make a plateful because these tend to go fast! 🙂 Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl so guests can dip their bite if they prefer. Again, these can be assembled ahead of time for convenience. These fancy fork looking skewers pictured above can be found at your local party supply store, but regular toothpicks work great too!
Side note: I like buying these veggies at Costco – the bags of mini bell peppers, large tubs of hummus, fresh mozzarella, and tomatoes are priced really well. Enjoy 🙂
