The holidays can be busy and quite stressful for many, but there are simple hacks you can try to make your holiday simple! Thanks to Save A Lot, I can stock up on a budget without worrying! I wanted to share two easy appetizer ideas for you to get started on your Christmas and New Year’s party planning. Let me know which one you choose to make!

As for the holiday recipes, let’s get started! These are two appetizer ideas you can put together quickly!
We love a good cheese and meat board so bring on the charcuterie! You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a charcuterie board (even though that is the rumor!). Start off at Save a Lot and look for salamis, deli meat, and more to get started. Pair it with Coburn Farms cheese cubes and experiment with different flavors and combinations.
In about five minutes and less than $10, you can make this board!
Another appetizer idea is to pair your favorite flavors together in a home-made salad with flair. I love trying new things around the holidays, and we made a spicy dressing from scratch with Coburn Farms sour cream and paired with a crunchy and cheesy salad that will go well with our holiday ham!
Start off with a chopped coleslaw base or fresh spinach. It’s up to you and your family’s tastes (and yes, Save A Lot has produce!). Top with tortilla strips, cheese, tomatoes, and this homemade dressing.
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup ranch-style salad dressing
- 1/2 cup Picante sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
Simply combine in a bowl and enjoy on top of your salad!
If you’re ready for the main course after these appetizers, don’t miss Save A Lot’s holiday sales! Save A Lot has Sugardale Ham. It costs $0.79 per pound from 12/11 through 12/24 (limit one per customer).
I would love to hear your holiday menus! What are you serving? Do you go for ham or do a lot of party appetizers like we do?
