Easy cheesy starters in your plate!

So, what’s there on the menu? How about mouthwatering appetizers before you order the meal? Usually, if you are at a hotel, you order starters before the main course. For a glass of mocktail, cocktail, a beer, wine or just a juice, you turn over the pages of the menu card and order a drink that makes your tongue dance. What about the starters? They are never ignored. Are they? Chips, groundnuts, salads, roasted papad, the choice is yours. I would call them appetizers.

And if you have invited your friends and relatives at home for a dinner party, you would still prepare atleast one or two starters. Wouldn’t you! Umm

Cooking is a drug. You can’t turn off the gas flame just after a single dish is cooked. You are always hungry for more, for some more dishes. And when you yourself cook them, it goes without saying that you like them more.

So what’s your idea of starters? Something spicy or do you like it crispy? How about preparing something simple, a cheesy delight? Cheese, yeah, we all love it as much as Jerry does in the cartoon. lol

So, cheese-cherry-pineapple on a toothpick! As simple as poking a toothpick in sliced pieces of cheese, pineapple and cherry! Sounds good? It tastes better! Irresistible indeed!

It’s not a recipe actually as it takes less than a minute. It is the most simple-to-make snack that, even a kid can arrange.


  • Sliced cheese cubes
  • Sliced pineapple
  • Half cut Cherries
  • Toothpicks
  • Ice


  • Place crushed pieces of ice in a dish
  • Poke one piece each of pineapple, cheese and cherry on the toothpick
  • Prepare as many toothpicks as you want
  • Place all toothpicks in a dish filled with ice
  • Serve chilled cheese-pineapple-cherry on toothpicks

The more chilled it is, more delicious it tastes. The pieces of cheese and pineapple keep your tongue twisting with a cherry on top. And that’s not all! If you like to sweeten the taste further, dip it in honey before serving. Cheese-pineapple-cherry on toothpick is a great snack. Name it as a cocktail snack or a quick teaser to eat in between the meals. Fresh juicy pineapple and cherry when paired with cheese not only tastes yummy but also helps in digesting the proteins.

Cheese-pineapple-cherry on toothpick is just a perfect healthy and quick snack. Simple to make in rush hours, isn’t it?
