Healthy Appetizers - Part One.

Since the holidays are here and I'm sure you will be throwing either a Christmas or New Years party or maybe just having a few friends and/or family over for dinner. I wanted to try to find some great healthy appetizer recipes that won't only taste delightful but they won't pack on the pounds and they will have a beautiful presentation to boot.

*I will be adding a recipe daily for the rest of this week and next week. Hope you find a few that you just love.

~Tomato Basil Skewers


  • 16 small fresh mozzarella balls
  • 16 fresh basil leaves
  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, to drizzle
  • Coarse salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Thread mozzarella, basil and tomatoes on small skewers. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
