When most people think of Thanksgiving they think of family, turkey, all.the.pies., and football. I remember growing up we’d finish our Thanksgiving feast at the beach with all of our family and then the men would retire to the living room to watch football. Or maybe it should be “watch football” – because there was definitely some snoring coming from the living room.
And while you probably won’t be making an appetizer for a tailgate on Thursday, you might need one on Friday or Saturday.
Last Saturday, I whipped up a broccoli salad dip for us to nibble on while we watched college football.
Big Guy was dead set on me utilizing the broccoli in the garden so I was left with limited options. Thankfully the dip turned out fantastic and was perfect paired with pretzels (gluten free!) and Wheat Thins.
And while the recipe is based off of the retro broccoli salad that we’ve all had before, it reminded me more of a pea pasta salad my Momma used to make when we were growing up.
Big Guy thought that a nice addition to the mix would have been raisins – which I have to agree with him.
This no-cook recipe (well, minus needing to crisp up the bacon) is perfect for a tailgate because you don’t have to worry about it getting cold.
Will you be watching football this Thanksgiving?
