4 Healthy Apple-tizers for Your Apple Cup Festivities

The Apple Cup, the anticipated yearly match between the Huskies and the Cougs isn’t one you want to miss.

To help you plan your party, we’ve gathered creative (and healthy) apple appetizer ideas that are sure to wow any guest.

  1. Easy Apple Pecan Slices – Quick, healthy and delicious that can be made in minutes. Slice up your favorite type of apple, top with a slice of cheese, raw pecans and honey, and enjoy.
  2. Apple Avocado Salsa – A football tailgate isn’t complete without chips and salsa. Try a twist on the traditional fare and whip of a batch of Diethood’s apple avocado salsa with a honey-lime dressing. It’s refreshing, healthy and addictive.
  3. Roasted Red Pepper and Apple Dip – We couldn’t list appetizers without adding a great dip. This version from Ricki Heller caught our eye for its creativity and healthy benefits. The dip is great with baked pita chips or as a sauce on grilled tofu or roasted veggies.
  4. Apple Gouda Quesadillas – More of a splurge, this recipe from Recipe 4 Living offers a change to the traditional quesadilla. Substitute whole wheat tortillas for the flour to get in a good serving of whole grains.
