Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Fruit Salad”

Three days after the Super Bowl and I feel like I am STILL recovering from the overdose of heavy, cheesy, game-day foods. With a large group of Midwesterners (and a few others) gathering together in Queens we had quite the spread: little smokies, Rotel dip, cheese plates, jalapeno poppers, pizza, cupcakes, king cakes, meatballs, guacamole, ice cream cake, puppy chow, homemade beer, etc. After consuming all of that I felt like I could have been tossed over the side of the balcony and just rolled all the way home to Brooklyn.

 

One of the redeeming parts of the spread was this Fruit Salad. Something simple, healthy and easy that helped to make our stomachs feel just a little better. I loved having a bit of ‚Äúreal‚ÄĚ food in the mix of all the processed items that make up a traditional Super Bowl party food table. This dish is quick to throw together and is a great addition to your tailgating menu.

Sarah Bode-Clark

Sarah Bode-Clark was born in raised in small-town Kansas. She attended Kansas State University where she received a BA in Theatre and Spanish. A few years after college in the "Little Apple" she moved to the Big Apple--New York City--with her husband, Joe. She loves all things food and spends her time cooking, eating, catering, and waiting tables. Her culinary pursuits are documented on her blog, Chomping the Big Apple (http://chompdown.blogspot.com). On top of food, Sarah has always had a passion for sports, starting as a t-ball player when she was six, and as she played volleyball, basketball, and ran track through high school. Currently she has left behind the group sports and spends her free time running, and has run the NYC Marathon 3 times, hoping for number 4 in 2012. She also gets a big workout every week during the fall cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs (she is a pretty active/crazy/intense fan), and though she has never followed baseball as closely as other sports, the Royals have always had a special place in her heart.
