Ohhh the best and easiest one would be hummus with carrot sticks. Then I would have suggested rice paper rolls or spring rolls, which some people already mentioned. Olives are amazing as hors d'oeuvre, you could add oranges and leek or spring onions with lots of lemon juice and let them marinate. Beets are also nice, marinated with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I don't know it dates fit your requirements, but you can do some amazing stuff with them, like "stuff" them with goat cheese, or even just an almond and you have a nice appetizer. You can also cut cucumber rounds and top them with cheese or hummus and a pinch of sriracha sauce, they look really nice and taste great as well :)

Rice paper salad rolls are fantastic and beautiful to look at. A little labor intensive with all the veggie prep. I can't tell if you mean all veggie, but they are especially tasty and beautiful when they contain a slice of prawn on the outer layer so you can see it through the rice paper.

Cheese tortellini on toothpicks, vegetarian summer rolls or spring rolls, veggies w hummus and pita, beautiful cheese platter (not sure if you mean vegetables or vegetarian) w crudités and cheese accompaniments.

Best?! These questions drive me crazy.
But one I like a lot is artichoke spreads, whether for use as dips or on top of bruschetta.
Mario Batali has a nice one with olives
And Rose Prince has one with arugula (rocket)
There are lots more out there, including versions of the bar snack spinach-artichoke dip.
