Green salad drizzled with nice sauces
All you need is some lemon, Caesar dressing, and chopped veggies (Add some almonds and blueberries as well to amp-up the taste!) to make your own moist salad at home. This easy to make salad can be served as a starter at your New Party. We suggest you to stay away from the norm of serving spring rolls or other unhealthy stuff at the new year bash. Serving these refreshing dishes will definitely work out in your favor.
If you think serving salad isn’t enough for a party starter, we suggest serving bread rolls as an alternate option. You can make this with whatever filling you want; you can enjoy them with periperi hummus, iceberg lettuce, low fat mayo, etc. It is better if you make the rolls and let them freeze overnight. All you need to do in the morning is take them out and fry them when the party begins. To keep things on the healthier side, roll them up in multigrain or Oats and Flax bread. Not only is it nutritious but also add to the aesthetics and flavor of the dish.
