What could be better than a delicious Greek salad rolled up in a fancy cucumber cup?
Start by hollowing out a cucumber and dividing it into bite-sized “tubes.” Fill those tubes with your favorite Greek ingredients, perhaps chopped olives, tomatoes, and feta cheese.
Garnish your cucumber cups with fresh dill and a dash of lemon juice. And you’d better make extra, as these tasty treats are sure to disappear fast!
Need to add a little protein to your wedding shower menu?
Start with a stack of grilled or roasted asparagus. After chilling in the fridge, divide into bite-sized bundles and wrap each with a piece of smoked salmon. Garnish with salt and pepper and they’re ready to be served.
These two super-foods are delicious combined and sure to be a real crowd-pleaser.
Here’s another tasty finger food that won’t tip the scales.
Start with halved cherry tomatoes and bite-sized cubes of mozzarella cheese. Spear them with toothpicks and top with a spoonful of pesto and a fresh basil leaf.
For a little extra crunch, add a bottom layer of thinly sliced, toasted ciabatta bread. Gluten-free crackers work equally as well!
Everyone loves charcuterie platters, and the concept works just as well in bite-sized kabob form. All you need is some toothpicks and an assortment of your favorite meats, cheeses, and veggies.
Add a fun twist with baby pickles or fresh garden herbs like basil. You can also make up special kabobs to suit guests who may be vegetarian or vegan.
Bonus: Kabob artwork will look adorable on your Adobe Spark’s bridal showers invitations.
Who says sushi needs to have rice?
Mix fresh lump crab meat in a bowl with mayonnaise, sriracha, and scallions. Spoon a bite-sized amount over thin slices of cucumber. Garnish with sesame seeds and soy sauce for a healthy sushi snack.
Bonus points if you get your fish from an eco-friendly source, as green weddings are all the rage right now.
As you can see, eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. When it comes to food for bridal showers, there are plenty of ways to keep it delicious and nutritious.
Add a few of these bridal shower food ideas to your menu and your guests are sure to be pleased!
