Appetizer

Finding the perfect appetizer is important because it is the first food item your guests will be tasting. An appetizer option is a stuffed spinach, mushroom, and cheese pocket. This is made with a buttery dough and fresh spinach and mushrooms and parmesan cheese. This is a comfort food classic and is small enough to just eat a couple and still feel hungry.

Salad

For the salad, create a combination of mixed greens because having a variety of in the mix gives it more character. Add cut cucumbers, shredded carrots, beets, roasted pine nuts, and a cilantro vinaigrette dressing. The salad adds more nutritions to the before and after items so it is critical to have a delicious mixed salad.
