Sharing some fun and Easy Spring Appetizers w/Fresh Herbs today! Fresh herbs mingle with veggies, feta, avocado and fresh ingredients to create flavorful and scrumptious spring toppings for delicious RITZ Crackers!
When spring finally arrives, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the elusive fresh herbs and produce we’ve been craving all winter long. These pretty and delicious spring appetizers are beautiful on the table for spring parties and showers. Or just because!
Winter can feel interminable here in New Hampshire. Even when the calendar declares that spring has sprung, it doesn’t necessarily mean it feels a bit like spring outside. Often we still have powdery white stuff on the ground in March. Hard to believe. So when April rolls around and we’re finally seeing the magical signs of spring appear, like tender green shoots and delicate buds, we get all excited. Hello spring!
You may remember our family hatched a monarch butterfly last spring at the kitchen counter. I witnessed its first laborious flight across my kitchen, and then we set it free outside. Our intelligent, freshly-hatched monarch flew straight to my herb planter by the side door that was overflowing with green: sage, parsley, rosemary, dill and cilantro. Monarchs instinctively know a good thing, that’s for sure. And so do I.
I always love using fresh herbs in my cooking whenever I can. Fresh lime juice, cilantro, white beans, avocado and feta combine for a delicious and colorful spring appetizer topping for RITZ Crackers.
While shopping for spring cards at Target last week, I spied the RITZ Crackers display. I like to keep them on hand for quick last minute snacks and appetizers. #Truth: I have to hide the box in my pantry if I need them for company. (Because my boys all love RITZ Crackers too!) I grew up with RITZ Crackers and they’re a delicious, crunchy base for all my Spring Appetizers.
This appetizer is so easy to put together. Combine all the fresh ingredients in a mixing bowl and spoon onto RITZ Crackers. Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately!
