The Garnishes

Fresh herbs, sliced jalapeños & even course grain salts can elevate foods instantly. Lemon & lime wedges, slices & rind add bold color. A rule of thumb is to highlight an ingredient that’s already used in the dish. For savory foods, look to freshly ground & red pepper flakes to finish strong for a game winning tailgating dish that’s not only tasty but delivers in eye-catching appeal.
