Salmon Puffs

Rating: 4 stars 33
Delightful salmon and feta cheese filling wrapped in puff pastry. I have substituted spinach and cooked tiny shrimp for salmon in this recipe too.

Warm Spinach Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
I created this lighter version of a hot spinach dip after my husband and five kids raved about a similar appetizer at one of our favorite restaurants, says Debbie Marrone of Warner Robins, Georgia. TIP: It's great with tortilla chips, bagel chips or low-fat wheat crackers, Debbie suggests.

Flank Steak with Avocado Salsa

A spicy chili-flavored rub is used to add depth and complexity to grilled flank steak. Top with cool and creamy avocado salsa, roll up in a warm corn tortilla, and you have a wonderful summer meal. Serve with a leafy green salad and cilantro-lime rice to round out the menu.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 1092
Looking for a refreshing salsa for a warm summer evening? This is our favorite. Serve with tortilla chips. This is also fantastic served on white fish. I often use a canned jalapeno instead of fresh.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade tortilla chips with a lime-cumin zing are tastier than store-bought.

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Rating: 4.5 stars 167
Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips.

Bacon Popcorn

Rating: 4.5 stars 67
This is a flavorful popcorn treat that makes your mouth water and disappears fast! If you toss the cooked popcorn in a paper bag, it helps to absorb any extra bacon grease and prevents the kernels from falling on the floor. The leftovers make nice snacks for lunch boxes.

Dirty Diapers

Rating: 4.5 stars 112
A perfect appetizer for baby showers or other informal get-togethers. This great appetizer tastes so much like mini-slider cheeseburgers.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Rating: 4.5 stars 373
Dates are stuffed with blue cheese, wrapped in bacon and baked until crisp. These are delicious and very easy to make for a party. You can serve them at room temperature, so it is okay to make a few hours in advance!
