Top 10 Low Fat New Year's Eve Recipes

By

If you want to party like it's 1999, or 2009, but worry about all those fattening chips, dips and fondues, try some of these delicious, low fat New Year's Eve party morsels. You certainly won't be missing out on flavor. And remember, have a platter of fresh veggies on hand for scooping up some of these delicious dips, and bake some pita chips or tortilla chips, too.

1. Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Roll-ups

As anyone from New York City will attest, smoked salmon (or lox) and cream cheese are perfect partners. Try this tasty little hors d'oeuvre. All that's missing is the bagel.

2. Potato Skins

Reduced fat cheese and fat-free sour cream are the key to keeping these perennial favorites low fat.

3. Spicy Shrimp Kebabs

These succulent shrimp take just minutes to cook. The spiciness comes from a blend of soy sauce, garlic, fresh ginger and chopped jalapeno pepper.

4. Eggplant Dip

One of my all-time favorite dips is eggplant dip, or Baba Ghanoush. Low in saturated fat and with no cholesterol, this a healthy appetizer to enjoy with whole wheat pita wedges or fresh vegetables.

5. Hummus

This irresistible Middle-Eastern inspired dip makes a great appetizer. Delicious with pita triangles, whole grain crackers or cut veggies.

6. Mango-Black Bean Salsa

A fresh, colorful dip that's perfect for any party. Serve with baked tortilla chips

7. Fresh Salsa

Naturally low fat, this freshly prepared salsa makes a wonderful change from the bottled variety.

8. Low Fat Spinach Dip

This low fat spinach dip makes a terrific appetizer. It's perfect with cut veggies or whole grain breadsticks and crackers. You can spice it up a little by adding a dash of hot sauce.

9. Low Fat Red Pepper Dip

Bottled red peppers make this dip a snap to prepare, although you're welcome to roast your own.

10. Fat Free Black Bean Dip

This simple, spicy fat-free dip works well with fat free yogurt or sour cream.
