Appetizers are a nice way to kick off a meal – feisty dips, colorful spreads, fresh lettuce wraps, spicy nuts, and tiny dumplings are all crowd-pleasers. You might also think of them as hors d’oeuvres or starters. When done right, they provide anticipation for the food to follow. Ideally, a little something to get things started without weighing you down too much, or filling you up.
