Food, Football, & Friendship

It’s said that the commercials are the best part of the Super Bowl – we think it’s the food. The Super Bowl provides a perfect opportunity to explore how food can bridge the gap between people and create lasting memories. No matter which team you’re rooting for, Super Bowl viewers can put down their differences and come together when it involves delicious finger foods.

While the usual spreads may consist of greasy, calorie-laden snacks, incorporating watercress into your appetizers and dishes can make the festivities healthier. These apps and sides are flavorful, nutritious additions to your Super Bowl watch party:

Charred Pineapple Guacamole

The sweetness of pineapple and the peppery kick of watercress bring this guac to life with a combination of flavors dance around in a beautiful blend. Stand out with a unique twist on a classic dip. We recommend pairing it with a lime-flavored chip.

Watercress & Strawberry Appetizer

Got a sweet tooth but want to stay healthy? This refreshing and vibrant appetizer combines watercress’s subtle spiciness with the sweetness of fresh strawberries and will make you consider having this app as a fruity dessert.

Feta Creamed Spinach

This creamy and flavorful feta spinach dip is a crowd-pleasing appetizer that combines the tangy taste of feta cheese with the freshness of spinach. Then, sautéed spinach is added to the mix, providing a vibrant green color and adding a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals.

Watercress & Caramelized Onion Crostini

These elegant crostini are a perfect blend of earthy flavors and textures. The light and nutrient-packed watercress pairs well with the rich caramelized onions and goat cheese on top of a crunchy crostini; an easy but tasty appetizer that will make any cook look like a chef.

Watercress & Spinach Dip

The crunch of water chestnuts in this dip gives a hearty texture to its fresh taste. The slightly sweet and tartness combines beautifully with the mild spice of watercress’s peppery flavor to bring a dip that will have you full before your entrée if you aren’t careful.
