Hamburgers and hot dogs usually take center stage at Fourth of July barbecues, but these bite-sized healthy Fourth of July appetizers pack enough heat to outshine anything on the grill!
Icy-Hot Watermelon Bites
These are easy to make a day ahead of time. You need:
- Watermelon, cut into bite-sized cubes
- Mandarin oranges, sliced
- Sweet Thai chili sauce
Drizzle sweet Thai chili sauce lightly over the mandarin oranges to give the cool watermelon a delicious kick!
Red, White & Spicy Toasts
Thin slices of chorizo and marmalade combine heat with sweet. You need:
- A baguette, sliced thin
- Radishes, sliced very thin
- Cooked chorizo sausage, sliced very thin
- Fresh pea sprouts or micro-greens for garnish
Caprese Salad Skewers
These are one of my favorite party appetizers. Simply skewer mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil drizzled with olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar!
