Great low calorie recipes for Appetizers or sometimes called 'Hors d'oeuvre'

Appetizers are food items served before the main courses of a meal, typically smaller than main dishes, and often meant to be eaten by hand.

Appetizers and Hors d'oeuvre have the same meaning and may be served at the dinner table as a part of the meal, or they may be served before seating to sustain your guest until the main meal is served.

For cocktail parties where a meal is not served appetizers are a great compliment with the beverages being served.

As an added feature each recipe preview provides you with the calories, carbohydrates, proteins and major vitamins per suggested serving. How often have you wondered exactly what the calories and carbohydrates were in a home cooked meal. This important information is provided on each recipe featured.
