Date Night

The Best Appetizers for Date Night

Date night gives you a chance to hit pause on the pressure of work, routines, and the overall daily grind. During that pause, you have the chance to strengthen your connection, grow together, and share a sense of joy, which are all beneficial to the general well-being and durability of a relationship.

And while each couple’s idea of a date night might differ, more often than not, the plans include a wonderful meal just for two. The best way to start that meal is with a few appetizers.

Wondering what Modern Plate appetizers can get your date started on the right foot? Keep reading to find out.

Burrata Toast

This delicious dish is a favorite among foodies, offering a delightful sensory-pleasing symphony of flavors and textures. With its combination of thoughtfully curated ingredients, you get silky smooth, savory, fresh, and crunchy notes in one wonderfully delightful and gratifying appetizer.

It all starts with the burrata. This fresh Italian cheese has a velvety texture that gives every bite a rich and decadent feel. Next, the prosciutto adds a salty and savory flavor to the meal, while the marinated cherry tomatoes add a sharp acidity and a blast of freshness.

Not to be downplayed, the grilled sourdough base of the toast offers a pleasing crunch and flavor that adds to the whole dining experience and provides a lovely contrast in texture.

Bacon Wrapped Dates

You might not be familiar with dates, but once you try them, we’re sure you will be hooked. This dish, which combines sweet chile jalapeño jam, goat cheese mousse, bacon, and jumbo pitted dates, is a delicious blend of flavors and textures that help get your date started on the right foot.

The contrast between the salty bacon and the sweet dates results in the ideal flavor combination. Add to that the creamy texture of the goat cheese mousse and the spicy kick of the jalapeño jam, and you get a combination that entices the palate and enhances the sensory experience.

Mediterranean Dip

Everything is better with a dip, right? While we might not be able to scientifically prove that, you’ll see that it rings true when the dip in question comes from our kitchen. We combine roasted red pepper hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, and olives to make this wonderfully silky and flavorful dish.

Even better? The ingredients in our Mediterranean dip offer vital nutrients, antioxidants, healthy fats, and more, meaning you can indulge and know that you’re eating for your health. You can enjoy our Mediterranean dip with grilled pita, giving you the crunch you need to complete this wonderful date night appetizer.
