5 Summer Appetizers for Your Next Event


If you host an event in the winter, it doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to "winter" produce and foods. No matter when your event is, typical summer-inspired foods are always a hit. Here are five ideas for summer appetizers at your next event.

Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Skewers

Does anything say summer better than barbecued meat? Add an extra summer twist by adding pineapple to chicken skewers. Your guests will feel like they're on a tropical island while eating this fun, healthy dish.

Bruschetta Bites

Bruschetta is a great option for a finger food at your event. Simply toast small baguette slices and spoon on a mixture of diced tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh basil. They're easy to eat and just as delicious.

Potato Salad

This summer barbecue staple can easily fit in at a winter party too! Make it stand out above other potato salads by adding your own unique twist. You could add freshly cooked bacon pieces, fresh herbs, or even grill the potatoes first to add a smoky flavor.

Fresh Salsa

Salsa can be made an infinite number of ways, but it's always a crowd favorite. Give your salsa a summery taste by adding peach, mango, or another sweet flavor to balance the spice and add freshness.


Another easy dish that goes great with tortilla chips, all your guests are sure to love some fresh guacamole.
