100 Savory Appetizers

From Classy Southern Hor D'Oeuvres to Paleo Turkey Sliders

— June 8, 2015 — Lifestyle
These savory appetizers make the perfect before-meal snack. Whether it be a special occasion or just a regular weekday meal, these light dishes are sure to satisfy during the wait for the main course.

While the health-conscious may find comfort in flavorful veggie sliders, the junk food lovers can devour miniature potato chip burgers. For those who like to keep it extremely light before a big meal, French onion soup dips or grilled fruit sandwiches are sure to satisfy without being overly filling. Such dishes as pastel egg dishes and healthy Halloween appetizers make the perfect side for a festive occasion. However, with a few minor adjustments, these savory appetizers can be served all year round.

These appetizers range from super healthy to sugar-filled and delicious.
