Christmas. Yes, I said it! It’s right around the corner and seems to creep upon us faster each year, doesn’t it?
Even if you are short on time, you can still be a gracious holiday hostess with this fresh and easy recipe featuring Athens Mini Fillo Shells. I’m telling you, they are my go-to holiday staple for good reason!
In addition to the crunchy Mini Fillo Shells, these bites are bursting with fresh flavors and the unmistakable colors of the season. They are going to be a hit with your guests.
One of the reasons these appetizers are loved so much around this time of year is that people are just overloaded with sugary, heavy foods. They tend to be really glad to see something in front of them that they don’t have to feel a bit guilty about eating, yet, there is no deprivation involved when it comes to noshing on these treats.
Did you know that Athens Mini Fillo Shells have a teeny tiny 30 calories for a serving of two shells? It’s a bit hard to beleive that you can include pastry in your diet for such few calories, but these make it easy to do.
I pile them high with a fresh and delightful pomegranate salsa that is packed full of fresh fruits and vegetables and contains no oil at all. You really could eat an entire tray of these for less calories than an egg nog! What’s even better, is that these come together in a matter of minutes. If you can put a few ingredients into a bowl and mix them together, you can make these appetizers.
You can make the filling ahead of time and fill these up right before your guests knock on the door.
