I seriously love appetizers. I like tapas. Small bites. Whatever you want to call it. I love grazing, trying new things.
It’s sometimes difficult to avoid heavy appetizers at parties. You can choose from the cheese dips, the pigs in a blanket, the brisket…none of which fit well into the “healthy” category.
Then, I tried this appetizer at a summer baby shower.
Delicious! Full of flavor! Relatively healthy, all things considered.

1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
6 large basil leaves, each torn into 4 pieces
Arrange zucchini slices on a serving platter. Top each slice with 1/2 teaspoon of tapenade. Sprinkle the feta cheese over top of the platter. Drop the basil leaves over top and serve.
