Simple, Easy, Cold Appetizers



Sometimes you need some first-class simple, easy, cold appetizers so you can have everything ready and in the fridge until your guests arrive.

Below you’ll find the top 5 recipes followed by more of my favorites.

If you are worried about keeping your chilly treats cold then set trays or bowls on top of larger bowls filled with ice. You can also have two bowls or trays of the same appetizer and simply rotate them in and out of the fridge. They also make trays like the Hot and Cold Thermal Tray you could purchase as well.
