Fruit Footballs are just about the most fun, healthy plate you can bring to a Super Bowl party.
Or should I call them Fruit Foodballs? Never mind me; I just like to play with words. And food.
Let’s play with our plate today, by gathering up football-colored fruits and arranging them into the shape of a football on a large platter.
I guarantee if you show up at the door with this beauty…
…you will be welcomed heartily! You can be sure everyone else will bring the chips, chili and chicken wings. The pigs in blankets, pizza and pico de gallo are covered. The snack stadium, spinach dip and sliders will be present, never fear.
You just do your delicious duty and show up with the fruit football. Everyone will remember it next year, and you’ll be asked to repeat it.
Everyone will cheer, I promise you!
Here’s what I used For this plate
- Fresh cherries
- Fresh blackberries
- Fresh red grapes
- Medjool dates
- Smoked almonds
- Mozzarella cheese stick for the laces
That’s it! You can sub out any fruit you don’t like, and sub in any you do like, although I have to say the color requirement put a limitation on it for me. There are plenty of winter fruits (apples, Asian pears) that I might have liked to include, but wasn’t sure I could pull it off due to their white-inside color.
