Okay... I'm hosting dinner this year for a mixed crowd of adults and children. I want to keep the pre-dinner eats light, so people won't fill up. I am looking for suggestions for appetizers that meet the following criteria:
-Finger food--don't want to have to mess with plates and forks
-Gluten-free, for a family member with celiac disease. Bread or crackers on the side are fine as I have rice crackers he can eat.
-Dairy-free, as many of the guests keep kosher. This rules out cheeses and yogurt- or cheese-based dips.Therefore, also pork- and shellfish-free.
-Some of the items must be nut free as one guest has a nut allergy.
We're tired of hummus. I am thinking marinated olives, sweet potato chips (commercial), maybe a bowl of nut-free trail mix, maybe some roasted chickpeas.
