If you aren't already taking advantage of fall produce, you really should get going. There are so many things to cook! There are dozens of winter squash varieties that lend themselves to soups, dips, and simple side dishes. There are apple varieties great for snacking, others for baking, and others still that pair perfectly with savory foods like roasted meat or make-ahead grain salads. There are green vegetables to build healthy lunches and dinners around, and hearty root vegetables like parsnips and turnips that make every stew taste unique.

Luckily, the autumn months are packed with food-centric holidays and parties, all of which are a great excuse to take advantage of the variety of produce available. And while you can (and should!) be eating in-season fruits and vegetables all day, every day, they make for especially good party appetizers. The only thing is, there are thousands (maybe millions) of fall appetizer recipes out there, so it can be hard to choose which one(s) you actually want to make. We teamed up with our friends at Pinterest to put together a list of the 11 most popular healthy fall appetizers out there.

Since "healthy" is a pretty vague term and can mean different things to different people, we chose recipes that are made with lots of fruits and vegetables. Some are perfect for passing around before a party, while others make a great first course at a sit-down dinner. No matter what you're looking for, there's bound to be something here that fits your bill.
