Vegetable appetizers are colorful and full of flavor, and are great for providing snacks and finger foods that will entertain guests without ruining their appetite if you've got a meal planned for later. Needless to say, vegetable snacks also come with thebonus of vitamins and minerals. Vegetable appetizers can be as simple as a tray of fresh veggies with one or more dips. Vegetable appetizers can come in the form of salsa, such as Black Bean and Corn Salsa, or be incorporated into a pastry appetizer, such as with Broccoli Puffs or Parmesan Broccoli Balls. Potatoes are incredibly versatile, and can take many forms when it comes to appetizers. For example, Red Potato Salad Cups are adorable appetizers, featuring small, hallowed-out red new potatoes filled with a diced red-potato salad with wonderful and unique flavor. Olives are very festive with vibrant tangy flavor, and can also be prepared in a variety of ways, such as with Olive Cheese Balls and Olive Tapenade, which is a dip made with two types of olives, capers and seasonings.
