Sometimes the question of "what's for dinner?" is easy. It's the "what appetizers should we make?" quandary that leaves us dizzy with options.

Don't worry, Ina Garten is here to help you get appetizers on the (coffee) table — and faster than you ever dreamed was possible. "When I have friends for dinner, the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time making fussy hors d'oeuvres. So I choose simple, no-cook things that I can serve with drinks," she begins on her latest instagram video. Her go-tos? Potato chips, salted cashews with an extra sprinkle of sea salt, and cherry tomatoes. To make them party-ready, Garten serves them in pretty silver bowls.

So brilliant, so simple, and we are so sold. Watch the full clip below.
