The holiday season is a time of family, friends, and feasting. It can be glorious if you aren’t gorging on the over-done standard appetizer fare. These foods likely won’t even accommodate all your guests, given today’s reality of numerous dietary restrictions. Add some sparkle to your culinary creations by rethinking the standard veggies and dip or retro stuffed eggs and bacon wrapped chestnuts.You can make your own dazzling dips or simply jazz up your favorite store bought offerings. Try fresh herbs, spices, and infused olive oils such as basil, lemon, or chili. Offer them up in any or all of these veggie platforms and serving suggestions.
