Keep It Light: 5 Creative Snacks To Get You Through The Season

The new year is in full swing, and resolutions are top of mind. If you’re getting worried about sticking to your health goals as you RSVP to football tailgates and social events, you’re not alone. Fortunately, you don’t have to skip parties and outings altogether, nor do you have to sacrifice any promises to yourself to get the most out of every occasion.

Try these 5 creative, better-for-you snacks you can quickly make for yourself and for any party guests.

Avocado Toast Bruschetta

Avocado toast is wildly popular for a reason: it’s easy to make and is a delicious way to get some healthy fats and nutrients into your system. This recipe calls for fresh lemon, herbs, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and a sweet and savory drizzle of Balsamic Dressing & Marinade that ties the whole snack (or meal!) together perfectly.

Mezze Platter

Upcoming tailgate or BBQ on the calendar? This Mezze Platter recipe can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and puts your standard chips and dip to shame. Loaded with vegetables and creamy feta cheese crumbles, this platter is highly customizable and perfect for any daytime gathering. Try it with Litehouse Organic Lemon Herb Dressing & Vinaigrette for a refreshing and light spin on everyone’s favorite dip.

Balsamic Tomato & Onion Salad

Great as a side dish or flavorful snack, this salad is anything but basic. Fresh tomatoes, onion, herbs, and Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing & Marinade come together to create an easy dish that looks elevated and satisfies any savory yet sweet craving.

Organic Ranch Broccoli Salad

If you need a veggie-packed snack or side dish that tastes like it came right from a restaurant, this recipe is for you. This broccoli salad has all the good stuff, from bacon and walnuts to dried cranberries and Organic Ranch Dressing. Bring this one to the tailgate or party, and you’ll be heading back home with dishes that were scraped clean.

Pomegranate Guacamole

If you’ve yet to try guacamole with pomegranate arils, you’ve been missing out. Another great recipe for at home or out at the tailgate or Sunday football watch party, this recipe takes your standard gauc dip and elevates the flavor with pomegranate arils, Key Lime juice, and fresh herbs. Serve with veggies instead of chips for an even healthier spin on a fan favorite snack.
