Gluten-Free Appetizers and Party Recipes

Fig Avocado Salsa
We are once again being bombarded with Super Bowl mania.  I don’t follow sports other than the tidbits delivered to me during the local morning news. While the hysteria was a bit more pronounced in NYC last year, it still feels inescapable this week.   At least last year I was able to enjoyed the Giants fans and hometown excitement; my favorite was the t-shirt being sold that simply said “F&*^ New England” – no logos, no team colors, just the letters across the chest.  Without that distraction, I am on Super Bowl overload.  Once again, I will have to entertain myself by creating a Super Bowl party-worthy menu.

If you haven’t tried this Fig and Avocado Salsa Recipe, you are truly missing out.

While the photos don’t do this dip justice, a Garlicy Bean Spread is perfect party fare.

If the group wants something more substantial, give this Hearty Turkey Chili recipe a try.

Tex Mex Almonds
As always, I am a big fan of Gramercy Tavern’s Spiced Mixed Nuts Recipe or the Barefoot Contessa’s Rosemary Roasted Cashews,  but Tamari Roasted Almonds or Toasted Tex-Mex Almonds are even easier.

Gluten Free Friendship Bars III
I adore these Gluten-Free Fruit and Nut Bars and the BEST Gluten-Free Brownies Recipe is a sure crowd-pleaser. For a sweet, but snackable dessert it doesn’t get easier than this Homemade Candy – Dark Chocolate Almond Bark.

As you are preparing a slew of gluten-free party-worthy dishes, just make sure you have gluten-free chips or crudite and watch out for cross-contamination – that darn pita bread seems to be ubiquitous lately….

I hope you enjoy the big game!
