10. Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe
This appetizer may not seem like a combination that would work together, but because of the milder sweetness of cantaloupe it balances the saltiness of the thin slices of prosciutto. Add a drizzle of balsamic over each slice, and this makes for a delicious and pleasing appetizer!

11. Cranberry Brie Bites
Some people swear by brie, while others don’t find the flavour for them. Brie on its own is a very creamy, rich flavoured and bold tasting cheese, which is why pairing it with another dish can often help balance out the flavour. Cranberries in particular, because of their more bitter and sour taste, blend with the brie into a balance that brings out the best in both. The bold brie flavour is softened, and the cranberries become sweeter in taste.

12. Garlic Herb Cheese Log
Cheese logs make just as great appetizers as dips and are just as easy to make. The spread can be added to veggies, chips, or pitas or even just enjoyed on its own! With its creamy, herby interior and crunchy walnut exterior, this easy appetizer is a must for any party.

15. Chocolate Dipped Oranges
Oranges are another perfect summer day snack, but to sweeten the deal a bit more and turn regular orange slices into an easy appetizer, this recipe dips them in chocolate and adds a sprinkle of sea salt for even more flavour. You can use dark chocolate to balance the sweetness of the oranges, and if you have extra chocolate you can also dip some strawberries or bananas and add those to the mix!
