Our Best St. Patrick's Day Appetizer Ideas

St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate Irish cuisine but we can’t help peppering a few, inspired bites into the mix, too—especially when it comes to appetizers. Appetizers go hand in hand with cocktails (or pints of stout) and are an easy way to give any get-together a festive touch. For the American version of St. Patrick’s Day, that means plenty of green! You’ll find the iconic color all throughout these small bites in the form of cabbage, vibrant pesto, fresh herbs and more—making each one a fitting addition to any March 17th spread. One of our favorites? These puff pastry palmiers. Each leaf of the shamrock shape is swirled with pesto for an appetizer that looks as good as it tastes.
