Super Bowl Veggie Platter

The Super Bowl is almost here and can we say we are just a little excited?! Not only are we excited for the game but we’re also pumped for the food! With the Super Bowl comes a variety of snacks, dips, entrees and deserts and it can be hard to decide what to make for the big day. Step up your typical veggie platter with color and taste by adding treviso and fennel!

  • Treviso may look too pretty to eat on a platter but it’s crisp leaves and earthy flavor are great to dip in hummus.
  • Not only does fennel contain so many great health benefits, but it also has a crisp and refreshing flavor that pairs perfect with herb creme cheese.

This platter is full of flavor and makes for a great light snack before or after all of those heavy entrees. Enjoy!

Treviso and fennel make for the best light and tasty game time snack!

Grilled Treviso with Roasted Corn

Grilled treviso and roasted corn salad is the best summer salad you could ask for, hands down! Grilling your salad does take one additional step but it’s so worth it and yummy!!!

Don’t have treviso? It’s okay, sub with romaine in a pinch, but you won’t get the vibrant color like treviso. If you don’t have a grill or stove top, you can always use an oven like in our roasted radicchio & arugula salad

Treviso & Tuscan Kale Caesar Salad

Treviso and tuscan kale caesar salad is giving the traditional romaine caesar salad a run for its money. Winter is here and we need something a little more robust. Swapping tuscan kale for romaine lettuce is the best transition for winter since we start to crave heavy comfy style foods when the temperature sightly drops. And the purple treviso gives the salad a pop that is eye catching.   

This treviso & tuscan kale caesar salad will have you coming back again and again, especially if you make your to own Caesar dressing. Now we know what you are thinking, homemade caesar dressing aka anchovies… Yes, I used anchovies and it’s AMAZING!! I’ll never go back to store bought Caesar dressing again.  I made the Bon Appetite easy homemade caesar dressing

Simple ingredients combined to make a delicious rich salad: 

  • Anchovies
  • Garlic
  • Lemon juice 
  • Egg yolk 
  • Parmesan cheese 

One thing I love about this salad is you can make it ahead of time. You can make the dressing, prep greens, and make it up to 6 hours beforehand. This allows for the tuscan kale to become more tender and absolutely delightful to eat. Just toss in croutons at the very end. 

Check out out our product pages to learn more about our products. Treviso | Tuscan Kale 

  • Treviso is a variety of radicchio and radicchio can be subsitited if your local store doesn’t carry treviso. 
  • Tuscan kale is also known as dino kale, lacinato kale, black kale. We call it tuscan because we like Tuscany, Italy and Nonnie called it tuscan kale 🙂
