Healthy Spring Appetizers
Start your spring meal or party the right way with one of these delightful appetizers perfect for the season.
This dish comes in handy for luncheons in summer since it's so colorful and refreshing. I prepare the Gazpacho a day ahead using garden vegetables. The flavor gets even better as it sits in the refrigerator overnight.

Mixed Berry Pizza
The fresh fruit shines through in this colorful dessert pizza. Mixed Berry Pizza is also a tempting appetizer at parties because it's a sweet change of pace from the usual savory dips.

To trim down traditional guacamole, I experimented with asparagus instead. My husband and our three hungry sons say this chunky low-fat Asparagus Guacamole is as tasty as the original. I love the guilt-free dipping.

Garlic Bean Dip
I've contributed this thick Garlic Bean Dip to many get-togethers, and there's never any left to bring home. Try serving the party starter with pita chips or fresh veggies.
