15 Healthier Appetizers to Make this New Year's Eve

Healthy appetizer ideas
What are you doing for New Year's Eve this year? Since we had kids, most years we have had a house party at our home with lots of delicious appetizers. Last year was especially one for the books! My parents, siblings, in-laws and close cousins came over dressed in sparkly clothing and we all made delicious appetizers to share. It was a blast.

This year, my brother has an 8 month old baby and him and his wife are going to host a NYE party at their home. They are also doing appetizers which is so much fun for New Year's. I love when everyone makes the appetizers that they love and are good at making. It makes it a ton of fun and super delicious. This way, it is not a sit-down dinner but instead, you can munch through the evening.

I wanted to gather up some of my favorite appetizer recipes that are a little bit lightened up and would be perfect for a New Year's Eve gathering (or anytime of course).
