Find delicious, healthy and easy appetizer recipes from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Cheesy Pull-Apart Cauliflower with Pesto
A combination of pesto and mozzarella cheese is tucked into a whole head of cauliflower. The florets “pull away” revealing the ooey-gooey cheese beneath for a fun and festive appetizer or side dish………..

Cheesy Jalapeño Corn Dip
Creamy melted cheese brings sweet corn and spicy jalapeño together with a nice pop of brightness from lime juice and cilantro in this tasty dip inspired by Mexican elote and esquites. This creamy and satisfying dish can be served with tortilla chips and veggies for dipping………..

Garlic Hummus
This classic hummus recipe couldn’t be easier–just toss a few ingredients in the food processor and whir away! Aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas) makes this healthy dip extra smooth and creamy. Serve with veggie chips, pita chips or crudités…………
