Raw ‘finger foods,’ including snacks, hors d’oeuvres and munchies, are a great when you gather with friends, family, and colleagues. Imagine a platter piled high with fresh and dried fruits, raw nuts, and sliced vegetables. It’s easy to put together and looks beautiful, too. It needs no refrigeration and stays fresh and delicious for hours.
When selecting your fresh fruit, keep in mind that you’re looking for ‘finger food’ that can be picked up easily and eaten by one person without utensils. Stay away from drippy fruits like mangoes and peaches, and go with small apples and pears, tangerines (rather than giant naval oranges), red and green seedless grapes, etc.
To satisfy chocoholics, you can add a bowl filled with vegan chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs in the center of your platter.
Raw food is simple, fast, and doesn’t leave you feeling sluggish. And it’s less likely to cause problems for people with allergies to wheat and dairy. That’s why all the things that make raw food so terrific for entertaining a large group make it ideal for a romantic dinner, too.
Speaking of romance, I’d like to thank the staff at OnlineDatingSite.net for including my website as one of its 25 Online Resources for Making a Romantic Dinner. You can read the full story here.
