Three days after the Super Bowl and I feel like I am STILL recovering from the overdose of heavy, cheesy, game-dayÂ foods. With a large group of Midwesterners (and a few others) gathering together in Queens we had quite the spread: little smokies, Rotel dip, cheese plates, jalapeno poppers, pizza, cupcakes, king cakes, meatballs, guacamole, ice cream cake, puppy chow, homemade beer, etc. After consuming all of that I felt like I could have been tossed over the side of the balcony and just rolled all the way home to Brooklyn.
One of the redeeming parts of the spread was this Fruit Salad. Something simple, healthy and easy that helped to make our stomachs feel just a little better. I loved having a bit of â€œrealâ€ food in the mix of all the processed items that make up a traditional Super Bowl party food table. This dish is quick to throw together and is a great addition to your tailgating menu.
2 c. pineapple chunks
2 c. chopped cantaloupe
2 c. halved and cored strawberries
(any mix of fruit can really be used here)
1/3 c. chopped fresh mint
Juice of 2 limes
Toss all of the ingredients together and serve.
