For an appetizer that is easy to dress up or down, guacamole and salsa are the way to go. Over the past few years, the sale of guacamole has continued to grow (via Deli Business). It is no wonder. According to UPMC, guacamole is loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, and fiber, making it a healthy and delicious snack food. Salsa, too, tends to be a healthier appetizer option than other dips; Healthline reports that salsa is high in vitamin C, low in calories, and all-around tasty.
Both dips use fruits and veggies as their main ingredient, which makes them healthier, and also lighter than others, which helps make them perfect as an appetizer. As an added bonus, both are not just vegetarian but vegan, containing no animal products at all. Guacamole is easy to make and can be purchased at most grocery stores. Classic pico de gallo is also easy to make and is sure to wow a crowd. If you are looking to mix it up, there are tons of different types of salsa, including pineapple salsa, fire-roasted salsa, and salsa verde.
