If it were up to me, dinner most nights would be an assortment of appetizers. I love finger foods and I love variety. Of course I don't love a lot of prep work and rarely plan ahead, so appetizers as dinner never happens...unless it's a family party (like the one we're having this Father's Day) and I fill up on hot artichoke dip with a side of chips and cowboy salsa before the chicken is off the grill.
My sister has requested this caprese bites with tangerine fig balsamic for Father's Day dinner and I'm happy to oblige.
Speaking of appetizers, Father's Day is a great time to whip up a batch of hearty finger foods. Here is a roundup of appetizers Nathan would—or already does—love.
