With Labor Day quickly approaching, I've been thinking a lot about all of the foods that are going to be served at the cookouts. Heavy foods, greasy foods, and let's not forget the potato chips. This year I am doing something a little different, and plan to serve up a few lighter, healthier options. Right now is a great time to use some of those garden veggies you spent all summer growing. And if you were lucky enough (unlike me) to get a bounty of zucchini in your garden, then you are going to definitely want to think about adding some Zucchini Toast Appetizers to your buffet table.
Yogurt and low-fat mayo based and served over snacking bread, it is so much tastier and healthier than chips. I made these for dinner earlier this week and got high praise from the husband on how good they were. I believe "AWESOME" was the word he used to describe them. There really is an "awesome" medley of flavors packed onto each snack bread, you may want to double the recipe for extras because they will go quick!
