The Super Bowl Challenge: What can I serve to guests or bring to a party that won't defeat my diet?
One great solution: You can level the playing field and score big points by offering a heart-healthy balance. While traditional Super Bowl Cuisine has a reputation for clogging arteries, a party platter like the one being described in this article offers a more conscientious option.
I'm thinking of something that is festive and fun, threaded on a stick or artistically arranged on a do-it-yourself platter and actually is perfect fare for Super Bowl parties.
Imagine an edible collage of fresh, colorful chunk-sized ingredients. Perhaps Florida seafood, beef tenderloin, mesquite grilled chicken strips, fresh seasonal garden fresh fruits and veggies.
Whether served hot off the grill or ice cold, Kebabs with a luscious dipping sauce are a tried and true party food.
The best part. . . they are super easy to prepare.
Simply pick up a package of wooden skewers at the grocery store. They are usually sold near the fresh fish case. Then indulge your friends in some of their favorite ingredients that can be threaded on a stick.
To save time, just prep (and cook if necessary) the different ingredients and arrange them all in an attractive design on a platter or a greenery-lined basket. I usually use big ruffly leaves of Southern collard greens topped with curly kale that grows in abundance around where I live to line my trays. Serve with sticks so everyone can create their own favorite combination.
