Even drinks can be served in this fun fashion, whether it's a Bloody Mary Bar at brunch or low-ABV cocktails at an afternoon picnic. There are also plenty of quick recipes for dips, spreads, and other tempting add-ons you'll turn to time and again, like Smashed Olives, Quick-Pickled Shallots and Jalapenos, and Two-Minute Feta Dip.
