Yesterday, I gave you a spiralized dish to bring to football parties.
Today, I give you a slightly more chic dish to bring to fall cocktail parties.
I guess I’m really into partying right now?
I’m the friend that always gets texted, “I’m going to [insert festive event here], I need to bring an appetizer or salad, what should I bring?!”
I always panic – it’s a lot of pressure! In the summer, I usually defer to my Italian Zucchini Pasta Salad. In the winter, I am going to now defer to my Shredded Brussels Sprouts, Kale and Pear Noodle Salad. Sometimes, I suggest a pear and brie crostini or some prosciutto wrapped asparagus – you can never go wrong there.
Now, I have a new recipe I can recommend: spiralized bell pepper antipasto!
This dish is great, because it’s made with mainly pantry items: canned artichokes, canned olives, balsamic vinegar and dried spices. The only produce involved are bell peppers and fresh basil.
The flavors are so robust! When you roast anything, flavors intensify, and that’s especially true here with the artichokes – they take on a nutty, savory taste that’s extra compatible with the provolone cheese.
This makes four small appetizer portions, but turn it into a meal by adding in a couple extra cups of greens and adding in a protein, like roasted chicken or even something as simple as chickpeas.
Now, all you’ll need is a LBD and a party to bring this delicious dish to!
