Will Gigi🍎 watch the Super Bowl with Papa Joey and friendsπŸˆπŸ’™?

Your snacks can range from anything that comes in a bag … to homemade. The best snacks, of course, are the ones you make at home. For example, skewers are a great way to get protein, and they look so pretty! And they last a little while…

You can take a cube of feta cheese, a black olive … dress it all up in tomato and dressing with a little olive oil…

… or you can take a piece of salami and add a cherry tomato and a small mozzarella … Ovalini … sprinkle with some Italian salad dressing. Voila! Italian skewers!

You can take pumpernickel bread, spread it with spreadable cream cheese … top off with sliced cucumbers…These munchies last all day. They are a great snack, and my Gigi gets her protein!

Here’s a so-easy Mexican dip! My friend shared it with me:

Take one Greek yogurt container and one jar of pre-made salsa…

Combine the two!

Now you have a healthy protein snack that goes well with vegetables or tortilla chips! All of the above snacks are inexpensive and healthy – for your Super Bowl Sunday or anytime get-togethers!

Salsa Fresca!🏈🐨

You may know salsa fresca by another name β€” pico de gallo. Both are a chunky salsa that is light on liquid but heavy on fresh ingredients.

Like many salsas, tomatoes are used as a base, but with salsa fresca, you leave your tomatoes diced but chunky.

Other common salsa ingredients are included β€” onion, garlic, salt, and cilantro β€” as well as small jalapeΓ±o pieces for a little kick.

Many salsa fresca recipes don’t require the use of a blender or food processor, but we like to use ours for a pulse or two so that the ingredients are combined – but just barely.

Enjoy!

Simple Salsa Fresca

Ingredients:

6 Roma tomatoes, diced

1/2 onion, diced

1/2 jalapeΓ±o, minced

Season with pepper.

Makes about 1 1/2cups
