Memorial Day Gluten Free Appetizer Recipe Roundup

It's Memorial Day weekend and I'm digging up my oldie but goodie appetizers for some gluten free ideas that you can whip together rather quickly; some only need assembling. These can be used all throughout the summer. Have a great holiday!



These frozen kiwi mojitos are perfect for a hot Memorial day weekend. 
With or without alcohol, they are a big hit.



Avocados are plentiful and reasonable right now.Trader Joes's actually sells little kit of everything you need to make guacamole for just $3.49 ( two avocados, a lime, a hot pepper, tomatoes, a piece of fresh garlic). or just buy your own for this  Easy to make party friendly  Mexican Guacamole  appetizer.


The Hummus Bruschetta appetizers only need assembling and they are always a big hit!


Roasted Eggplant Spread and Roasted Veggies are great for keeping the calories low; make one or both




Are these little caprese bites cute or what? Again, just assemble.. mozzarella ball, cherry tomato, fresh basil,


Got watermelon? Cut some up in cubes and freeze it. This frozen watermelon smoothie is about the most refreshing drink that you can make for both kids and adults.. It's delightfully sweet without any added sugars!


Tangy, full of cilantro and spices, these simple marinated  Middle Eastern  Carrots are a rage in Moroccan restaurants on the salad plate before the meal. You can make them yourself and amaze your guests! Serve these little appetizers cold on a platter.
Middle Eastern Carrots, grilled eggplant, grilled cauliflower, toss salad, humus
