Oscar Night Appetizers

Oscar Night in my family is always an excuse to make delicious finger food. My three tricks for preparing a meal of hors d'oeuvres is to combine easy dishes with more complicated ones, make as much as you can in advance, and include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your spread.

Cherry Tomatoes and Mozzarella Balls
1 pint cherry tomatoes
6 ounces small mozzarella balls
About 5 basil leaves, torn
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
Salt and pepper

1. Combine mozzarella ball, cherry tomato, and basil on a tooth pick.
2. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and spices.
3. Can be refrigerated up to two hours before serving.

Other Oscar Night Appetizer Ideas:
Platter of cheese, pepperoni, apples, and pears

Hummus and veggies

Spinach and artichoke dip served with bread

And of course a good bottle of wine!
