Healthy Game-Day Snacks

This recipe is perhaps the easiest recipe of them all! Take your favorite vegetables – celery, carrots, and bell peppers work great for this – and slice them into “sticks,” about 3″ long or the length of your middle finger. Serve with your favorite hummus and enjoy!

Single-Serving Chicken Salad
For this healthy Super Bowl Sunday snack, you’ll need a couple of cucumbers and your favorite chicken salad (like our Best Ever Chicken Salad, found on our “From the Kitchen” menu). Slice the cucumbers into 1/2″ thick rounds and add a dollop of chicken salad on top.
Black Bean Salsa
For a healthy and delicious salsa you’ll be dipping onto all night, try out this black bean salsa. You’ll need:
- 1 bag frozen yellow whole kernel corn, thawed
- 1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 cup chopped red onion
- 2 cups seeded and chopped cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt, to taste

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Allow to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to let the flavors set. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
