Surprisingly simple appetizers that taste like summer!

Being able to whip up delicious appetizers that look and taste fantastic doesn’t have to be left to the master chefs of the world. Here are 3 surprisingly simple appetizers you can make (with ease!) that are packed with protein and have a delicious summery taste!
 
Olive, Prosciutto & Pineapples Nibbles
 
These fancy looking appetizers combine both sweet and savoury flavours to give an amazing ‘pizza’ like taste in each mouthful! Yummy!
 
Ingredients: 
  • Half a pineapple, cored, peeled and sliced into 20 bite sized chunks. 
  • 20 pitted Kalamata olives 
  • 1 packet of prosciutto torn into 20 individual strips
  • 20 toothpicks 
Method: 
  1. Hold a toothpick in one hand and then slide an olive down halfway.
  2. Fold a strip of prosciutto into a neat bundle then slide it on after the olive. 
  3. Turn it upside down and press the toothpick into a piece of fresh pineapple.
  4. Present them on a serving dish and you are ready to enjoy them! 
Mouth- Watering Kofta Meatballs
 
These yummy bite sized meatballs, have a deliciously Turkish flavour and remind me of summer days relaxing in the sun with friends.
 
Ingredients: 
  • 900 g. Ground lean lamb mince 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint,, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. Cumin powder
  • 1.5 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp. Pepper
  • 20-30 toothpicks, or mini wooden forks
Method:
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees, and spray a large baking tray with olive oil.
  2. Use your hands to combine all the ingredients into a large bowl.
  3. Begin to roll the mixture into bite sized balls, then space them out evenly on the baking tray. 
  4. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until just cooked through, then remove and place under the grill for a further 3 minutes. This helps give them that delicious crispy finish. 
  5. Spear each meat ball with a toothpick and transfer onto your serving dish.
  6. Enjoy!
Bacon Wrapped Dates
 
This is another simple, yet scrummy, savoury sweet treat! So easy to make and so fun to eat!
 
Ingredients:
  • 10 slices of rindless bacon
  • 20 whole, pitted dates
  • 20 toothpicks, pre-soaked for a few minutes to avoid them burning.
Method: 
  1. Preheat your oven to 220 degrees. 
  2. Slice the strips of bacon in half length ways then arrange a single layer on a plate and place in the microwave for 2 minutes. This is to soften the bacon so it is easier to roll. Repeat until all the bacon is partially cooked. 
  3. Once cooled, wrap a piece of bacon around each date, before securing with a toothpick and placing on the baking tray. 
  4. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure they don’t burn. (remember the bacon will continue to crisp once removed from the oven)
  5. Then allow them to cool slightly before transferring to your serving plate.
  6. Enjoy!
