20+ Spring Appetizers

Let the fresh spring veggies and fruit be the stars in these simple party-ready spring appetizers and salads. Spring is packed with special times of family get-togethers from Easter dinner, a Passover Seder, Mother’s Day brunch, a bridal shower, or a graduation. We must not neglect the most delicious start to any great meal, the appetizers.

We’re looking at dishes with bright colors and flavors. Let’s start with a few strawberry dishes for spring.

I. Strawberry Spring Salad

II. Strawberry Caprese Salad

This dish takes a summer favorite and adds sweet strawberries to the salty mozzarella.  Can’t stand tomatoes? Leave them out!  Or you could add small sweet grape or cherry tomatoes to the mix.

VII. Veggie Flowers Spring Appetizer

If you’ve visited very often, you probably know I love food art and veggies. Put the two together and I’m in heaven!  Finding Zest made pretty little flowers from peppers and herbs and served them on crackers. They’re both pretty and tasty.

VIII. Colorful Carrot Patch Appetizer For Spring

A cute, healthy, and tasty  spring appetizer for your next get-together.  Carrots “planted” in a cup of hummus in a clay pot.  The perfect centerpiece for a table of spring appetizers.

IX. Spring Vegetable Garden Appetizer

Similar to the carrot patch, the vegetable garden is small veggies planted in a garden of hummus.  Surround it with crackers and other vegetables and you have the perfect appetizer table.

XI. Spring Vegetable Wraps

Spring vegetable wraps and rolls are a colorful, crunchy dish that is wonderful for an appetizer, snack, lunch, or dinner.  It is also a vegan friendly option. Instead of a large wrap, make miniatures for a colorful plate of spring bites.

XIV.  Za’atar Yogurt Dip and Vegetables

A Middle Eastern spice blend, Za’atar has a slight citrus note that goes well with vegetables. For a recipe to make your own Za’atar blend, see Roasted Beets & Feta on Toast With Homemade Za’atar.   For little work, you can make a platter of vegetables and a bowl of fresh yogurt dip and it requires no forks.

I am in love with this vegetable plate. The variety of colors and flavors are enhanced by the tasty dips, Red Pepper & Chick Pea and Spring Pea Guacamole. It really makes these beautiful vegetables a delight to eat.

Now let’s look at the art of deviled eggs.


XVIII.  Deviled Eggs

Whether you prefer the classic deviled egg or a spicy version like Tex-Mex Deviled Eggs, I believe no gathering is complete without a plate of deviled eggs.  You can make them plain or fancy. It’s your choice. The difference between most deviled eggs is in the spices mixed in the yolk and what garnishes are used. Good Housekeeping has an article with 30+ deviled egg recipes. Here are a few interpretations to get you inspired.

A. Classic Deviled Eggs

So, what are deviled eggs? These are hard boiled eggs that have the yolks removed, mashed into a creamy mixture with seasonings, and added back into the egg whites for serving. They’re a holiday staple for almost every meal from Easter dinner to Thanksgiving.

C. Truffle Deviled Egg with Candy Bacon

E.  Hummus Deviled Eggs

F. Mama’s Deviled Eggs With A Parmesan Crisp

G. Deviled Easter Chick Eggs

Use your favorite deviled egg recipe or mine and decorate the little eggs to look like chicks. It’s not hard and look adorable for holiday get-togethers.

I hope these spring appetizers will inspire you to try something new.  Happy Spring!
