These Asian-inspired summer bites are an easy and upgraded alternative to your basic store-bought chips and salsa that you can make for any summer get-together. From Thailand, we have Miang Kham, an appetizer much like the lettuce wrap that uses large basil leaves, pork, shrimp and fresh herbs and spices. For the vegetarians, try a mango summer avocado roll from Thailand made with fresh fruit and veggies and homemade peanut sauce. Last but not least, for an easy evening appetizer that you can serve as a finger food, try bulgogi wrapped peppers. Watch the video below to learn how to make your own. And, to learn more tips and tricks to help you plan your next party.
