Dips and spreads, our favorite aperitif recipes

With toast, the recipe dips and spreads sign a successful aperitif!

Spreads with Mediterranean flavors:

With a growing vegetarian or flexitarian trend, it is important to provide meatless spreads for your guests. Mediterranean flavors are always a great success. The classic hummus, with its chickpeas, lemon juice and sesame oil remains a sure bet. Another option, tapenades! Made from black or green olives, they are ideal for those who pay attention to their lines. Eggplant caviar and peppers will also give your aperitif a southern feel.

For a taste trip to Greece, don't forget the famous tzatziki, this creamy blend of Greek yogurt and cucumber. Ideal for bringing freshness on the palate during a summer aperitif.


Rillettes for a good franquette spirit

For a bit cheesy, the rillettes make a comeback on our aperitif tables. With tuna or salmon, they have invaded the fresh shelves of our supermarkets. To change from the traditional Le Mans, opt for revisited and homemade versions. Surprise your guests with a simple and economical preparation of ham rillettes or with an apple-curry sardine version to bring an original and tangy touch.

What do I eat my dips with?

Pita bread, sliced ​​bread, salted cookie, or simple baguette, just cut them into strips or slices for your guests to dip into them. To add crisp, don't hesitate to toast them in the oven or toaster. You can also bet on seed crackers (homemade or not), for chic spreads.

To give an air of dolce vita, you can opt for homemade breadsticks that are very easy to prepare or even buns for bruchetta seasoned with rosemary or olive oil for example.


Vegetables can also be a great option. Carrot or cucumber sticks, they will go very well with your dips. So your aperitif dinner will be lighter and balanced.
