How To Style A Football Party Appetizer

Tailgating provisions whether picked up ahead of time or prepared from scratch deserve to not only taste their best but look good too. A few key fundamentals will have game day dips styled to perfection for football festivities. Hummus has long been a crowd pleaser but when it’s served with a variety of colorful dippers, fans go wild. Organize cucumbers, tomatoes & olives on white plates for a bright, bold look then slice some of the tomatoes & olives in half for interest. Although crumbled feta is readily available, purchase a block then slice it into neat cubes to serve over the top of the hummus. It’s an effortless garnish that also doubles as an instant flavor enhancer. Ever wonder why hummus looks so appealing when it’s ordered from a restaurant? Try drizzling the surface with a bit of olive oil & sprinkle with a smattering of freshly ground black pepper just before serving. If simple dips are some of your favorite snacks to enjoy for a day of football games, look to Three Best Tailgating & Football Party Hummus Dips for delicious inspiration.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lemon zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to dips.
Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
