Green hors d'oeuvres?

I'm doing the nibblies for my MIL's annual St Patrick's Day party (they don't do Christmas or Easter, but they pull out all the stops for any alcohol-related holiday). I'd like to bring a selection of Things That Are Green. I was thinking about doing some devilled eggs with dill and chives blended in to the filling, and of course olives and cornichons. Any other ideas?

Thanks so much!

  1. Artichoke and/or spinach dips are usually popular.

    1. Irish sausages as pigs in blanket. Irish, but not green. And you can make a dip blended with food dye. Maybe sourcream and onion? Spinach dip? Green mashed potatoes? Oh, and I've seen deviled eggs where the eggs themselves were green. Pretty funny.

      1. A spinach frittata cut into wedges is nice, and holds well. You can bake it in advance (freeze if necessary) and then just reheat as needed.

        Also, how about spinach tortilla chips w/guacamole? Or spinach tortilla roll-ups. You could also do a tray of roasted green veggies: asparagus tips, broccoli florets, zucchini, and baby brussel sprouts, with an herbed dip.

            I was going to suggest pesto as well. I made an argula/walnut pesto recently. It was a beautiful bright green, and very yummy just with bread!

              Oh, that sounds fantastic! I tried pesto made with spinach and almonds - delish!
